For the importance of animal welfare and for the protection of wild life, the hunting act must be repealed.
Anyone who has witnessed wildlife that has been persecuted since the ban on hunting with dogs will want a repeal of this wildlife unfriendly act. The amount of animals which are now persecuted with a snare, poison and poor shooting practices is dreadful. Hunting with dogs is the most natural method to control vermin. Those people who wish to hunt should do so without interference from those who do not understand the countryside and its methods. Laws which have eroded civil liberties are wrong.
