This petition had 9,331 supporters
The estate manager for the Holnicote Estate gives a licence to the Minehead harriers to hunt on the Holnicote Estate in Exmoor, which has one of the biggest nature reserves in the country Dunkery and Horner Wood https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/holnicote-estate/trails/dunkery-and-horner-wood-circular-walk
The Minehead Harriers are a harrier pack which means that their hounds will be trained to kill fox's as well as hares
The National Trust gives them a licence to have unrestricted access to the estate without any monitoring or agreed meets. This hunt can currently go into the nature reserve at 5 am and cub hunt with permission from the National trust
The National Trust have refused the offer of monitoring these hunts https://www.league.org.uk/news/hunting-on-national-trust-land-league-statement
The Minehead Harriers have already been prosecuted for illegal hunting n 2008 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmlPdGym9Lo
Despite repeated claims by The National Trust that they "do not allow illegal hunting" the evidence strongly says that they do.
The National Trust themselves disrupted the Minehead harriers during a dig out and trying to put a terrier onto a fox.
The national Trust then banned their own hunt
Despite significant and serious breaches from this harrier pack (not a drag pack you may notice) the National Trust then amazed the UK by giving this hunt a licence to hunt which "follows an artificial trail"
And this hunt was given a licence to hunt once again , you can read the Minehead harriers new "code of conduct" here
The Uk are now expected to believe that this hunt is lawfully hunting following an artificial trail after they have been caught red handed digging out and torturing fox's
Please sign this petition to try and put a stop to the lies and deceit by this "charity"
