    OUR NATIVE WILD ANIMALS ARE IN GRAVE DANGER
    It took animal–lovers 80 years and 700 hours of parliamentary debate to bring
    SAVE ME 2010 | How they stand - Is your MP/political candidate FOR or AGAINST a repeal of the Hunting Act?


    the Hunting Act into force in 2004, by democratic process, in accordance with the will of at least 75% of the population. This law currently makes it illegal to hunt to the death with packs of dogs, not only foxes, but stags, hares, and other wild creatures in Britain’s countryside.

    With the Conservative/LibDem government now in power, it is likely that there will soon be an attempt to bring in a bill to REPEAL the Hunting Act. Repeal would mean that currently banned blood sports – fox-hunting, stag hunting, hare coursing, etc – would again become legal.

    Since the current set of newly elected MP's includes many who are linked to the Hunts and the Countryside Alliance, it is quite possible that the bill will succeed, destroying the protective Act. This would be a tragedy for our native wild animals, and a huge step backwards into barbarity. Do you know how YOUR MP will vote ?

    Be aware of this situation, tell everyone you know, and make sure your MP knows that you expect him/her to vote to KEEP THE HUNTING ACT IN PLACE, and work to make it more effective.
