The Countryside Alliance and the Fox Hunting Ban of 2004


A week ago, on Boxing Day, saw hundreds of hunts throughout the UK which sparked the fox hunting debate yet again!

The 2004 Act outlawed hunting wild animals with dogs in England and Wales,making last week’s activities illegal. The Countryside Alliance is a pressure group who wish for the ban to be repealed as they state that the law is “hard to interpret and enforce, illiberal, bad for animal welfare and a waste of police resources”. This outsider, promotional pressure group has worked hard against animal welfare groups so they can hunt again!


“In 2010 one hunt received 47 visits from animal rights activists armed with video cameras, aiming for prosecution”. This highlights how emotional the people feel on this and it is subject to much debate (feel free to leave your views below!). They wish for hunting to remain vividly on the political agenda as to “spot every opportunity to move [their] cause forward.”

What are your views on Fox Hunting and the hunts on Boxing day 2012?

Thank you
