Repeal the law requiring training before removal of animal carcasses from our roads.

Repeal the law/regulations that require contractors to be trained in removing animal carcasses before they are permitted to do so.

This law/regulations led to the absurd situation recently, highlighted in the national media, where contractors painting markings on the road, left a gap around a dead animal, rather than simply move the carcass off the road and carry on.

Why is this idea important?

1992 badger protection act

Common sense should be applied when enforcing the Badger Protection Act . As ordinary householders living in a residential suburban area our property was undermined by badger setts. Our garden collapsed making it too damgerous to go into. We had to wait for six months ( the badger breeding season) and watch while the badgers dug out 3 or more skips of earth from under our garden and house foundations. We were told if we inteferred with these setts we would be fined £5000 per badger disturbed plus a possible 6month jail sentence per badger.We had no financial help from anyone and had to spend thousands of pounds putting the damage right. These animals should have been removed to a place of safety. after 6months we could close the sett but the badgers were not protected in anyway. The law does NOT protect these creatures and does not make any sense ay all in suburban areas.

Hunting Act

The Hunting Act 2004 should be repealed ASAP. The act has not 'saved' any animal. It just makes good law abiding people criminals.

How people in Cities can decide what is best for the countryside I do not know. Hunting is part of the community. Packs run shows, point to points, fund raisers for charities and bring visitors in which supports the local B&B's and pubs.

Get it overturned and then let the people in the countryside decide what is best for it.

Repeal the Hunting Laws & the Countryside Act

Whilst I would agree that the dispatch of a fox should be humanely managed the hunt is part of the rich pattern of countryside life which is now in danger of being legislated into extiction. The countryside act also does nothing to support the hunt as it places impossible restrictions on the control of dogs on open moorland. Threatening all dog owners with police action and fines is a nonsense as the laws are impossible to police. Education of the general public with regards to behaviour in the countryside is more important than beating them with a big stick. I hold up the New Forest as a model for educating users of it's facilities that perhaps the rest of the land owners/managers should follow.
