Amendment to the Hunting Act 2004

An amendment should be made to the Hunting Act 2004, Schedule 1, Exempt hunting, (6) Falconry, to require dogs to wear muzzles when flushing to birds of prey.

The Act should be amended to include draghunting and again dogs should be required to wear muzzles.

Repeal the Hunting Act 2004 and all other legislation that criminalises hunting with hounds

Repeal the Hunting Act 2004. Repeal the Badger Act. Remove the Polecat and Otter from list of protected species under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Remove the Otter from the list of protected species under the Habitat Regulations 2010 and the EC Habitat Directive.

So that those who wish to hunt with hounds may do so.

Hunting is the most humane method of controlling foxes

Hunting foxes only has two outcomes, the fox lives or it dies instantly. Unlike other forms of control the fox is never injured or maimed and left to die a slow and agonising death. Man has been part of the countryside for thousands of years and is part of the natural balance. For those who argue that fox hunting is like badger baiting or similar horrendous activities they obviously cannot recognise the difference between an activity with no purpose carried out purely for pleasure and a legitimate way of controlling predators or culling selected animals such as stag hunting. Yes, people enjoy going hunting but this does not change it's purpose and it is enjoyed by all, from the poorest to the richest – there is no class divide on the hunting field.

Repeal the Hunting Act

Ideally, repeal the Hunting Act outright, and trust members of hunts and their supporting organisations to behave responsibly and humanely towards the animals they hunt.

If this is deemed too controversial, make hunting legal with certain restrictions, though I should add that these would probably be as impossible to enforce as the Hunting Act itself, and the majority of hunts and their members would be acting within them anyway.

I don’t understand why it was banned in the first place?

I am from the city and have never in the past been interested in fox hunting only shoes and bags,however I feel it is such a shame that it has been banned as it has always been part of what I thought was the English heritage I also know what harm foxes can do if not controlled, unlike most townie's I can see beyond the city and was amazed by the ban as there is more important problems in this country that need addressing than banning a sport that has done more GOOD than harm. So as I new leader do the right thing and start to make England, England again.
