Government gives green light to shooters & landowners to decide future protection of hares in England.
We celebrate the anniversary of the Hunting Act 2004 on February 18th. The country is in the worst economic recession for decades and it is deeply regrettable that the Coalition leadership continue to offer a free vote on repealing the ban on hunting with dogs.
Conservative MPs must look to the future on Hunting with Dogs, and, in line with the majority opinion in the party and the general public, keep this illegal sport banned.
Conservatives Against Fox Hunting launch the new Blue Hare website for a close season for hares. The organisation started campaigning for a close season for hares in May 2011 in the House Of Commons and charted the development of the campaign on the Blue Fox website.
