After Seven Years, Brits Work to Repeal Fox Hunting Ban

Fox hunting in Great Britain has been a very painful issue for the supporters of this activity. It has been seven years since Hunting Act of 2005 made it illegal for hunters to pursue foxes, deer, hares and mink with hounds. But it seems that things might change. According to Countryside Alliance Jim Paice MP, Minister of State for Agriculture and Food, has claimed that the ban does not work.

Jim Paice MP, Agriculture Minister, said:

“The current law simply doesn’t work. I personally am in favour of hunting with dogs – and the Coalition Agreement clearly states that we will have a free vote on whether to repeal the Act when there is time in the Parliamentary calendar to do so.”

According to The Guardian, Alice Barnard, the Countryside Alliance chief executive, said the organisation remained committed to seeing the ban overturned. She criticised the ban as unenforceable and unworkable.

The ban, and the prospect of a repeal, continues to arouse strong opinions. The League Against Cruel Sports published a poll of 2,126 people suggesting that a repeal would be deeply unpopular with the wider public.

Two-thirds of those surveyed believe the Hunting Act should remain in place, while another anti-hunt group condemned efforts to overturn the ban at the same time as the country prepares to host the Olympics.

But still there is a great support to the sport. There have been seven Boxing Day hunts since the ban and about 250,000 people are thought to have attended legal meets last year, with the mild weather said to be one reason for the high turnout.
