Keep Fox Hunting Illegal

Red Fox #3

Target: Andrea Leadsom, candidate for British Prime Minister

Goal: Do not allow foxes to be brutally chased down and killed if elected Prime Minister.

One of the candidates to replace David Cameron as the next British Prime Minister has announced that she will legalize fox hunting in the country if elected. In 2004, the practice of hunting wild mammals, notably foxes and deer, with dogs was banned in England and Wales. This extremely cruel form of entertainment involves foxes being chased from their habitats by packs of hounds and hunters on horseback. The fox dies of exhaustion or more commonly, by being ripped to shreds by the hounds trained to kill it.

Andrea Leadsom, who could become Britain’s next Prime Minister, has said that she wants to lift the ban on fox hunting, absurdly suggesting that doing so would improve the foxes’ welfare. In addition to being terribly inhumane, fox hunting is also deeply unpopular in the country. Polls have found that 83 percent of the public do not wish fox hunting to be made legal again. Despite this, the government could vote to repeal the ban if Leadsom is elected.

Sign this petition urging Andrea Leadsom to retract the ludicrous and backward plan to legalize fox hunting, as doing so would allow for thousands of these innocent animals to be subjected to unecessary terror, pain and death.


Dear Mrs. Leadsom

Your intention to repeal the fox hunting ban if elected is a backwards and inappropriate plan. To suggest that doing so would improve the foxes’ welfare is even more ludicrous, considering the cruelty and abuse involved in this form of entertainment. You are no doubt aware that terrified foxes are chases through the countryside by riders and hounds before being killed by the dogs, who brutally rip them to shreds.

This is not an acceptable activity in this era, where most people recognize that animals are sentient beings deserving of our compassion, respect and protection. In fact, a recent poll finds that 83 percent of the British population is against legalizing fox hunting.

Please take animal welfare seriously and scrap the cruel and absurd plan to bring back fox hunting against the public’s wishes if elected.

  1. Why would anyone elect a jerk with a cruel sadistic streak? Do NOT put callous mindless peop,e in office. A caring aware candidate would be a better choice. Anyone who would think fox hunting is ago is idea probably wears fur and is still living I the dark ages. Progressive kind caring leadership will help make the world better. Any person who spends time torturing innocent animals is definitely the wrong choice for a leader. Duh!

    I wonder if anyone could tell me if , as this candidate has dropped out of the race, there is a petition to Theresa May or if his petition could be changed to her name to retain the number of signatures? Its important that we along with League Against Cruel Sports maintain the pressure and give evidence of the cruelty and mistreatment of animals. There have been several incidences of breeding fox cubs which devalues the hunter’s maintenance that the numbers need to be kept down. And also several times that hunt followers have masked up to attack sabs, yet hunter’s often wish to have sab’s masks (used as protection) removed
