Are hunts allowing their hounds to run riot on roads, causing a major risk to the safety of other road users ?
In the UK, we are suppose to have laws (Section 27 of the Road Traffic Act) to protect road users from the dangers of others. So we must ask ourselves : why are police not upholding these laws when hunts break them ?
Every week, over 30,000 hunting hounds run riot over our countryside and public roads, killing wildlife and running a high risk of spreading disease from farm to farm.
To avoid being prosecuted under the Hunting with Dogs Act, hunts deceitfully allow their hounds to run ahead, uncontrolled and out of sight, allowing them to exploit loop holes in the law by claiming it was an accident.

Most of the public are totally unaware that hunting still continues today under the guise of the made-up name of “Trail Hunting”.
Hunts claim they follow a laid artificial scent trail. However, this has been exposed as a lie many times.
Some hunts do not even try to hide the fact that they are illegally hunting and blatantly continue to break the law as they know the loop holes will allow them to avoid being prosecuted.
Since 2005, hunts have got away with making a mockery of our laws by exploiting loop holes and taking advantage of the lack of effective law enforcement and a biased pro-hunt government.

Did you know ?

In the UK, we have a small minority group of hunters (less than 1% of the population) who claim to be the voice of all the people who live in the countryside. They are very mistaken.
85% of British people are against hunting, which our government ignores to favour the minority.

Did you know ?

These hunters think they are above the law and live by a different set of rules from every other British citizen.
Why does it seem we have one law for the general public and another law for hunters.

Did you know ?

These hunters allow their hounds to run riot over roads with no control, causing accidents, invading people’s gardens, attacking pets and killing other animals.
Hunts and their deceitful tactics
One of hunt’s main tactics is to allow their hounds to run ahead and out of sight, which enables them to deceitfully claim it was an accident because they could not see what the hounds were doing.
Accident or not, this is still reckless behaviour showing that, intentionally or not, they have no control over their hounds.
This deceitful tactic may have allowed hunts to avoid prosecution on the hunting field, claiming they did not encourage their hounds to chase or kill a fox and therefore it was not intentional (i.e. huntsmen claim they were not sufficiently close to the hounds to be able to prevent them chasing and killing a fox) … however … on a public road, allowing hounds to run riot out of control (regardless of being with them or not) is still an illegal offence and shows no regard for the safety of other road users.

Are Police are failing to uphold the law when hunts are involved ?

Biased policing ? : Members of the public are required to keep their dogs on a lead and under control when exercising their dogs in a public place/on a highway, so why are hunts not required to do the same when exercising their hounds?

In the UK, do we really have one law for the public and another for hunts ?

Are Police Crime Commissioners failing to ensure the police are upholding the law and being effective in controlling hunts ?
Hunts claim they follow a laid artificial scent trail … on roads ? … on railway lines ? … in areas totally inaccessible to horses ? … We all know they lie and are really illegally hunting foxes.

Are Police Crime Commissioners failing to ensure the police are upholding the law
