Prosecute Huntsmen Who Killed Foxes in Front of Children

Target: David Cameron, Prime Minister of Great Britain

Goal: Arrest English huntsmen who illegally killed foxes in front of small children

Anti-hunting activists released pictures that show small children looking on as huntsmen with dogs found and shot a couple of foxes. The images show children standing close by as the animals are dug up from an old badger hole and killed. The incident happened after a hunt by the Modbury Harriers in Great Britain. The League Against Cruel Sports reported the incident after a farmer was appalled to see them killing the foxes in front of children. One of the pictures showed the men hovering over badger holes until they found and killed a young fox. The hunters were firing shots right into the hole as the children looked on close by.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is investigating to see if what the men did breached any laws that govern fox hunts. The Countryside Alliance believed that their behavior was legal and humane and said that they are not sorry for the leak of the pictures. The farmers on the other hand thought it was very unprofessional and poor judgment to think that what they did was fit for children to watch. The farmers requested a number of times for the hunters to leave their land, but they never fulfilled that request.

This display of animal cruelty shows a total disregard for the foxes, and also a lack of safety for the children. Please sign this petition to help prosecute these men for putting the welfare of animals and children at risk.


Dear Prime Minister Cameron,

Huntsmen in Great Britain were caught illegally killing foxes by farmers who photographed them. More appallingly, they were killing the foxes in front of small children. This was a cruel display of animal abuse for the amusement of irresponsible huntsmen. These men need to be prosecuted for killing the foxes for no reason, and for doing it in front of small children. This behavior is extremely aggressive and unnecessary because the reckless shooting of the badger holes could easily have hurt the children. These are sadistic men who want to show children that they are powerful and can kill these foxes for fun.

Although fox hunting has been banned since 2005, it still continues without any prosecution. Please help implement the law and stop these men from killing foxes and, most importantly, for being irresponsible adults in front of young people.

    Cave men! Barbaric idiots! I am ashamed of being human, and we called ourselves civilized?

  2. I am one of the people who go out to monitor hunts in an attempt to help get them prosecuted … I have been at a ‘Children’s Meet’ where very young children are brought into hunting, and it is quite common to see them on ordinary hunts. It is a mind set that is conditioned early – that hunting is okay. Tim Bonner of the Countryside Alliance saw nothing wrong with small children witnessing foxes being killed in this incident and this demonstrates how isolated this group is from normal values.
