Petition Repeal the hunting act
Although foxes are beautiful to look at we have to remember that for many they are vermin and can carry diseases. Plus the costs they cause to landowners with the slaughter of lambs etc. Foxes will kill chickens, ducks etc beyond what they need at the time. It is something that needs to be managed.
Around 400 members of the Royal College of Vets in London state that fox hunting is the most effective and humane way of managing foxes in the countryside compared to trapping, laying poison or shooting which prolongs the death of a fox
