Don’t Bring Back Fox Hunting

Target: Theresa May, British Prime Minister

Goal: Do not vote in favor of allowing foxes to be chased down and viciously killed once more.

Since 2005, fox hunting has been illegal in England and Wales thanks to a ban which has protected these animals from this cruel and unnecessary blood sport. British journalists have now revealed a plot involving various fox hunting masters and politicians to overturn this ban following upcoming general elections.

Should the ban be repealed, foxes will once more be driven to death through exhaustion or ripped to shreds by hounds trained to kill them. It is worth noting that dogs are also frequently injured, sometimes seriously, during fox hunts as they struggle with their hapless prey. The tradition of fox hunting may go back centuries in England, yet it remains no less barbaric today than it was in medieval times.

The Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May, has been vocal in her support of lifting the ban and has promised to offer a free vote in its favor. This is in sharp contrast to the over 80 percent of people polled in England who are aware of the practice’s cruelty and do not support its return. This is not the first time British conservative politicians have pushed for the ban’s repeal, but given the current political climate, it is feared that it may have a greater chance of success than it did previously in 2015. A single vote could potentially make or break the ban’s chances of remaining in effect.

Sign this petition to urge the Prime Minister to not support any proposals which would repeal the ban so that thousands of innocent lives are not put at risk. This “sport” is violent and savage and has no place in the 21st century.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister May,

In interviews, you have stated that you support lifting the ban on fox hunting and would provide a free vote for its repeal should it brought up again in Parliament. Now that it seems likely that this may occur following upcoming general elections, I urge you to reconsider your position.

Fox hunting is a cruel and barbaric practice which results in the mutilation and killing of innocent animals. In many cases, dogs are harmed alongside their intended quarry. There is nothing to be celebrated about a tradition which is based in harming, torturing and killing living and sentient beings.

I urge you to listen to the vast majority of Britons who do not favor bringing this abhorrent practice back and to retract your support.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It’s NOT A SPORT when the animal doesn’t know it’s being pursued for sport and it doesn’t have a weapon to defend itself. There’s no good excuse to kill animals who are in their own environment doing what they’re on the planet to do. And again, what’s sporting about an idiot with a gun chasing a small animal that he don’t even want to eat?

    ALL wildlife is essential for the survival of the planet and the humans who live on it. Each species, no matter its size nor how insignificant it may seem to humans, has its own role in making this planet work and thrive efficiently.

    Humans, however, are the least necessary species on earth, and it, and every other species on it would fare much better without any of us or the destructions we leave in our wake.

      Couldn’t agree more with that…where’s a good nuke when you need one? Nonhumans were here LOOOOOONG before man. Too bad it didn’t STAY that way.

  2. Theresa may isca fckng bitch! She needs slaughtering because she’s no good to anyone!

  3. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE CAN’T JUST GO DRAG HUNTING. IT IS LOADS OF FUN, AND NOBODY GETS KILLED. YOU GET TO RIDE OVER FENCES WITH FEWER DISRUPTIONS, AND RIDERS GET PORT WHILE HOUNDS GET BISCUITS AT CHECKS. RIDING TO HOUNDS IS FUN, BUT KILLING THINGS IN A BLOODY FASHION IS NOT. IT IS DISGUSTING AND WRONG, AND THERE IS NO NEED FOR IT. DRAG HUNTING IS THE PERFECT WAY TO HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO. JUST GO DRAG HUNTING AND STOP BANGING ON ABOUT THE “TRADITION” OF LIVE FOX HUNTING. BECAUSE WITH DRAG HUNTING, YOU CAN HAVE YOUR TRADITION AND BE HUMANE AT THE SAME TIME.

  4. This sounds like May is getting ready to cave in to the rich and bored, no one else would even be interested in fox hunting – it’s barbaric and cruel and inhumane as all hell. Stop the hunt!!!

  5. Cynthia Mattera says:

    Fox hunting is NOT hunting at all. Its a bunch of rich bastards letting lose their packs of dogs to tear foxes out of their dens and BRUTALLY rip them apart. They just stand by and watch. Absolute evil and truly cruel beyond words. PLEASE do not allow them to bring back fox hunting.
    Animals have no voice….please speak up for them!

    I love Janets contribution… really is the true answer, Thanks. I want P M May to read and really think about these words…..Please.
    Baha’i Writings ~ “To the blessed animals, however, the utmost kindness should be exercised: the more the better it will be. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent. Educate the children in their infancy in such a way that they may become exceedingly kind and merciful to the animals… The universe of God is a wonderful theatre upon the stage of which every created thing plays its part.”
    Hadith No. 557 ~ ”O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals? He replied: Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate.”
    Proverbs 12.10 ~ A righteous man has regard for the life of his animals.
    Psalm 34:16 ~ The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. God created all the animals
    Psalm 50:10 ~God cares for the animals. “Jesus said: ‘are not the five sparrows sold for two copper coins and not one of them is forgotten before God.
    Psalm 104 ~ All animals belong to God.
    The Bible repeatedly affirms that all creation participates in the praise of God, and each living thing has a part in God’s great purposes.
    Mahatma Gandhi ~ “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
    Buddha ~ “It is more important to prevent animal suffering, rather than sit to contemplate the evils of the universe praying in the company of priests.”
    Pythagoras ~ “For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”

    You missed off that fox hounds have been found to spread bovine TB and may be a greater source of the problem than badgers.

  9. Ellis Toscano says:

    What country would not want to be seen on the same level as Chins, India, and the list goes on. Shame on this ignorant woman

  10. F-ing PSYCHOPATHS, all of those in favor of, or too cowardly to say “NO” to barbaric fox hunting! Additionally, this is teaching/training dogs to be vicious, so TWO wrongs at once! Bunch of evil scumbags…
