Apart from being a badly thought out law, that is impossible to administer properly and wastes considerable expense and time, this law is achieving nothing. Were it to benefit foxes there might be merit in it. However, more foxes are now killed than before the Act. Also many of those killed are either young, or vixens with cubs, rather than the older, infirm foxes that hunting killed. Today, more foxes are left wounded to die in excruciating pain then previously, when killed quickly by the hunt.
That this was a class-prejudiced act is illustrated by the time the previous Government devoted to it; 700 hours as against about 10 for the Iraq war! People of all walks of life enjoy hunting and should be allowed to continue to do so.
