Say no to animal cruelty - Stop the repeal of the Hunting Act

Young_fox.jpg

We, the undersigned, note that the Tory prime Minister, David Cameron, has backed a repeal of the Hunting Act, saying "It is my firm belief that people should have the freedom to hunt, so I share the frustration that many people feel about the Hunting Act and the way it was brought in by the [Labour] government.”

We note that Cameron, who was once a member of the Heythrop Hunt in Oxfordshire, has said his government will enable a "free vote" in parliament to repeal the Hunting Act.

We further note that our local MP, Phillip Hammond, supports hunting with dogs and has said that he will vote for a repeal of the Hunting Act.

We believe that hunting wild animals with packs of dogs is barbaric and cruel and should play no part in a modern Britain.

We, the undersigned, call on the MP for Runnymede and Weybridge, Phillip Hammond, to vote against the repeal of the Hunting Act whenever the legislation to repeal is put before parliament.

Hounding an animal within an inch of its life, causing immense fear and distress before ripping it to shreds whilst still alive is not a sport. It is a barbaric act against another living being. If foxes need to be controlled, there are humane ways of doing so.
