Boycott Hogs Back Brewery

This petition had 1,789 supporters

Hogs Back Brewery has chosen to assist and support the Surrey Union, Crawley and Horsham Foxhunts In their public fundraising events. These are hunts that continue to break laws, causing trauma to both public and animals. 

Surrey Union Foxhunt caused the death of a fox on their New Years Eve 2016/2017 hunt, blaming the fox for 'running across' their path. In October 2014, they trespassed and hunted a Roe deer, causing distressing trauma as they interfered with experienced wildlife help, dragged it by a broken hind leg, eventually shooting it.  In 2012, they caused traffic chaos and human injuries as 4 hounds were injured (1 assumed crushed to death) crossing a busy road in peak hour traffic. The could not have been following the 2004 hunting act requiring them to follow pre-laid trails. 

Crawley and Horsham Hunt members are also guilty of a string of offenses, including trespassing with the hunt  in 2013, assault 2012, 5 violations of the hunt act 2012. They were investigated as recently as 2016 for hunt violations. Police rarely prosecute hunt offences as this is costly.

I urge people to refuse to support this company by boycotting their beers and brewery tours. 

When contacted, they refused to respond. They removed responses on their pages and blocked people who expressed concern about their activities.
