The pitiful fines that were twice issued to the Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt in 2012 & 2019 as well as the failure to secure a conviction against the Quorn hunt for their February 2020 hunt across a private golf course and into a graveyard reinforces the work we do.
What's more, during 2020 we received 55% more reports of suspected cub hunting than in 2019, despite the national lockdowns.
Our director of Investigations has been working behind the scenes in order to secure a set of intensive training sessions for all CPS associated lawyers and barristers with a view to bettering their knowledge on wildlife crime and the Act.
Without your support this wouldn’t have happened so please donate today and together we will continue to push for stronger legislation for all animals persecuted in the name of 'sport'.
Each donation means we can continue to investigate reports of cub hunting, share information through our investigations work and train local police forces to better tackle wildlife crimes in their area.
