HIGH WYCOMBE MP AGREES WITH HUNTING FOXES FOR BLOOD SPORT,DO YOU?

Hunting with dogs was banned in 2005 in a reaction to the strength of public feeling against the cruelty of wild animals being chased, often to the point of exhaustion, before being purposely set upon by packs of dogs, for so called ‘sport’.

Ten years on, the Act is under threat as the Government seeks to repeal the Hunting Act 2004.

We believe that chasing and killing live animals with dogs is barbaric, outdated and has no place in modern Britain.

The vast majority of the British public support the Hunting Act (typically 70 - 80 per cent) and the UK has some of the most progressive animal welfare laws in the world. This reflects the public consciousness of compassion towards animals.

A repeal of the Hunting Act would not only give a green light to resuming fox deer and mink hunting, hare hunting and coursing, it would also allow those who use terriers and lurchers to fight and kill foxes, deer, hares and mink.

150 years ago other cruel sports such as bear baiting, bull fighting and dog fighting were legal in Britain. No one would suggest now that those cruel sports be legalised again and we believe the same is true of hunting with packs of dogs - nobody has the right to be cruel to animals.

Our local MP Steve Baker wants this Barbaric practice to be once again Legal and is voting it in on June 8th 2017.If you don't agree with our local voice's decision please sign against his decision before it's too late.
