Stop Slaughtering Protected Foxes for Sport

Target: Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons

Goal: Do not allow trail hunting that illegally targets protected animals.

Chris Packham, an anti-hunting advocate in England, was recently the victim of an explosion outside his home. He was unharmed, but the attack represented the latest violent incident directed at him. He has reportedly had several deceased animals placed outside his property. Despite the disturbing turn of events, Packham still stands strong against a practice he claims is widely used and abused across the nation.

Trail hunting uses an artificial scent to hunt down wild animals. The practice has apparently been encouraged in the hunting of foxes, which is supposed to be illegal. Hunting any wild mammal with a dog also falls under the illegal category, yet hunters are allegedly making use of trail hunting to carry on these kills as well. In fact, a prominent hunter was busted after allegedly encouraging followers to use these hunts a s a “smokescreen” for illicit activity. Hunters cannot continue taking advantage of loopholes to slaughter vulnerable animals.

Sign the petition below to urge a wholesale ban on this increasingly deadly practice.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Sir Hoyle,

The National Trust recently announced it would stop issuing permits for trail hunting on its lands. This important action may never have occurred if a high-profile hunter was not caught reportedly encouraging the misuse of this activity for illegal hunts. To date, trail hunting as a “smokescreen” has already likely been responsible for countless slaughters and the willful flaunting of the law.

The laws themselves need to adapt to eliminate these destructive loopholes. Please do everything in your power to abolish trail hunting and its damaging effects from the United Kingdom once and for all.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  5. This so called smokescreen is just another cowardly way to kill!!!

    How anyone could kill any creature for the sheer sport of it is unbeknowsed to me. One must definitly have a cruel killer instinct…

  6. Fox hunting of any type is appalling & inhumane. It’s a warped pastime of arrogent, entitled assholes.

  7. I’ll never understand how anyone can enjoy killing animals. I think they are weak little humans who need to feel superior to everything and this is what gives them a sense of power.

  8. Christine+Eckerson says:

    Stop killing wildlife! It is not a sport, it is cruelty!! They have every right to be on this Earth too!!

  9. STOP SLAUGHTERING ALL PROTECTED FOXES AS WELL AS ALL OTHER WILD AMIMALS IMMEDIATELY!!! WHOMEVER KILL PROTECTED AN8MALS SHOULD BE KILLED TOO AS THEIR PUNISHMENTS!!!

  10. Michelle Stewart says:

    It all must be stopped all over the world and made illegal

  11. Elease M. Bradford says:

    I’ll never understand how some people get pleasure from hunting innocent animals.

  12. Sir Lindsay Hoyle – I find it appalling that England allows hunting for sport. Every living thing on this planet has a right to be here and the will to live is the same for man and beast alike. You are in a position to make a difference in the lives of the animals that are being hunted and this Petition is asking you to make the decision to ban all trail hunting. Please!

  13. Jaime Perez says:

    Hunters are nothing but cowardly murderers of innocent animals and will use any tactic to be sure they kill the precious animals. Hunting should be banned and outlawed!! Leave the animals alone.

  14. Susan Chandler-Davis says:

    There are stories that some of these sick people with position and money hunt, and barbarically kill, these beautiful creatures for sexual gratification!

  15. Raynesha+McGhee-Reed says:

    STOP KILLING THESE POOR FOXES!!!!!

  16. Nancy Allen says:

    Stop the killing of foxes

  17. FUCKING KILLING MACHINES!!

  18. Hunting is a “sport” for MENTALLY-DERANGED, PSYCHOPATHIC, SADISTIC, DEHUMANIZED and DESENSITIZED FUCKERS!!!
    ANIMALS SHALL NOT BE VICTIMS OF HUMAN PSYCHOPATHS!
    HUMANS DON’T OWN THIS PLANET.The Earth has been created for ALL species living here, and NOT for humans only!!! STOP this SHOCKING and PRIMITIVE MADNESS!!!
    Foxes are beautiful and intelligent animals…kill these hunting fuckers instead because they are pure WASTE of OXYGEN!!!

  19. Julia Edinger says:

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH NICOLE DAVIS
    “STOP THIS DISGUSTING MURDER NOW!! YOU IGNORANT, SELF-CENTRED FOOLS, DONT YOU KNOW ABOUT KARMA….WELL YOU SOON WILL. YOU MAKE YOUR OWN AND IT DOESNT MATTER WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN IT OR NOT…ITS YOURS, GOOD OR BAD. YOU ARE ALL DISGRACEFUL EXCUSES FOR HUMANITY AND WILL REALISE IT SOON. SUCH BARBARIC, EVIL, WICKED ACTIONS WILL NEVER, EVER GO UNPUNISHED.”

  20. Elizabeth Rutledge says:

    I AM LITERALLY BEGGING YOU TO STOP TORTURING AND KILLING INNOCENT FOXES! They are PROTECTED for a reason. It would be one thing if you were trying to survive and you needed to kill the animals for food, but TORTURE (especially!) and MURDER are NOT ENTERTAINMENT! The morality of a country can be judged by how they treat animals. The U.S. & U.K. are close to the bottom of countries viewed as morally correct.

    Please understand that foxes are living beings who feel just as you and I do. So they feel terror, abandonment, physical and emotional pain, and they DESERVE TO LIVE LONG, SAFE, HEALTHY LIVES. What is more important: sport or life? LIFE ALWAYS TRUMPS ALL ELSE! Again, I am PLEADING FOR YOU TO STOP!!
