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]

    It’s truly shameful that disingenuous measures meant to protect wildlife are nothing more than a smokescreen to protect blood thirsty hunters. DO YOUR NAMES SAKE, CLOSE ALL LOOPHOLES AND PROTECT WILDLIFE!

  7. May all those who ” hunt for sport or trophy ” suffer a slow horrible painful death before they rot in hell you chickenshit punk ass bitches!

  8. Country of my birth I am ashamed about this. I really thought that fox hunting had been brought to an end. But I guess like all serial killers they will find a way to keep doing it.

    I AM UTTERLY SICK OF MAN!!!!! DIGUSTING BEYOND WORDS.

    HUNT ALL THE HUNTERS!!!!

    Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons LOOK AT THAT LITTLE FOX….WHO IN GOD’S GREEN EARTH SHOULD WANT TO HARM THIS INNOCENT LITTLE FOX! MAN LEADS A TRAIL OF DESTRUCTION WHERE EVER HE GOES. IT HAS TO STOP!!

    Do not allow trail hunting that illegally targets protected animals. STOP AND PROSECUTE and FINE hunters that take advantage of loopholes to slaughter animals. REWRITE THE LAWS TO PROTECT INNOCENT ANIMALS. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THE ANIMALS VULNERABLE!!!!

  10. These species are psychotic. Dangerous to all of us. Why do police not stop this??
    Disgusting and no doubt money involved somewhere?? Stop this. If these idiots want a battle join the army. Nah too cowardly..scum.

  11. HUNTERS SHOULD BE DEATH!!! Hunt the hunters. NOT to kill defenseless animals.

  12. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    Please END ALL FOX HUNTING NOW!!! This isn’t sport. It’s MURDER.

  13. It is not just Red Foxes that need protecting…..EVERY ANIMAL, BIRD, FISH AND ALL OTHER FORMS OF WILDLIF NEED TO B’TOTALLLY PROTECTED’ FROM THRILL KILLING CRUEL EVIL PUNKS. These killer punks should be forced to hunt each other. IN MY OPINION….

  14. Stop slaughtering; period. What a sick world to even have to ask.

  15. Stop now it’s sick

  16. The indignant and cold hearted cruel hunter must now become the prey. He acted callously and with pure malice.This cowardly inhuman man needs to face reproach as his taunting and bullying behavior is reprehensible. It is beyond despicable and being a decent man of honor in a position of authority and respect, we humbly ask of you to right this indignity and extreme injustice, please.

  17. It is disgusting, disgraceful and sickening that people can be so cruel and heartless and ignorant. All species of wildlife are vitally important to our ecosystems and environments and deserve to live. This is INEXCUSABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE.

  18. Well how civilized and and superior can you get? Not. This puts the lie to that ‘the British are so civilized’ trope. This is low-brow nastiness for the entertainment of a few cowardly losers and it needs to be stopped. Big consequences are needed to stop this; find, prosecute and jail these jerks.
