Hunting Review

Hunting Review

This petition calls upon the house to launch a review into the current legislation in regards to hunting and the hunting bans currently in force.

This petition also calls upon the house to reverse any and all hunting restrictions currently in place that prohibit pest control of any kind as well as the ability to hunt on one's own land for not the aforementioned pest control but for food also.

Can you read as if you read the petition you'd see that I want a reversal of any and all hunting bans current in force and to make it easier to hunt on one's own land.

Not usually I agree with you, but AYE. Definitely, as I live out in the countryside this happens quite a lot. We need lesser restrictions.

The present (or maybe the previous) Parliament voted to keep the Hunting Act. An acquaintance of mine runs a pest control company if you need help with unwanted pests.

Now why would they crush me, they need to understand that conservation is what I'm all about I don't hunt for fun merely for food and to keep livestock safe. I'm part of the Countryside Alliance which, as we all know, is rather 'Green'

Edit: Just for clarification I'm part of BASC, CA and NFU, I'm a proud supporter of the countryside and it's conservation however there is a problem with pest control and current laws are anti-pest control, the fox hunting ban for example was a national tragedy that shouldn't have ever occurred.

I (the family business) also own an estate within the UK that has a farm on it's premises, I feel that most laws aren't helpful in helping the countryside at all, I would absolutely love to blame this solely on Labour however it lies more at the feet of the RL Tories

I have no intention of supporting a backtrack of the ban on hunting with dogs.

Why wouldn't you? It's natural for dogs to defend their land against all aggressors.

They're not doing it out of choice as part of a hunt. Someone's dog going out and killing a fox is different to it all being turned into what is essentially a party.

I'm by no means massive on animal rights, but I don't support hunting with dogs.

I agree with hunting on one's own land but there is a difference between hunting with a shotgun and a gun dog, and hunting by allowing hounds to tear foxes to shreds. I would call on the government to relax current legislation regarding hunting bans but continue to legislate for the role of dogs in hunting.

Abstain at the moment. I don't like the current ban but don't want a free for all on private land. I support a review of current laws but there needs to be a bill before I say aye or no.

I agree with you. I say we think more about practical solutions.

Is it different? Foxes are pests and should be killed for the sake of the poultry on estates and farms, it's no different to using a gun on them. No party here

No.
Any reason or is this the typical lefty response of "no" without backing up?

They should not be killed brutally for sport. If you find pest control so enjoyable that's what you want to spend your Boxing Day doing (and the whole town coming out to watch you set off on your party pest control session) then it's probably a thinly veiled excuse for a party.

Hate to break it to you but these hunts happen more than once a year....

I'd like to be able to hunt for food, but not with a gun, with a bow. I have a compound bow and legally I'm not allowed to hunt animals with it, yet in some situations it can be a more humane kill as the broadhead arrows cause massive internal damage and therefore the animal bleeds out quicker and the time until death is greatly reduced.

Let's not forget that the UK is arguably the home of the bow!

I also have a problem with some magpies around my area so it'd be useful to me if I could remove some of them. Large groups keep invading my garden and I'm sick of it.


EDIT: So yeah I agree with the petition.
