The National Trust: Revoke Land Use For 'Trail' Hunts

In light of recent events, most notably that of an incident involving the Cury Hunt which led to an elderly couple and their dog being attacked by hounds on a Cornish beach, we ask that the National Trust revoke all licences given to Hunts to use their land.

In regards to fox hunting, The National Trust state that "Following the Hunting Act of 2004 we grant licences for trail hunting, i.e. the following of an artificially laid scent, where this is compatible with local circumstances."

However it is clear that the majority of hunts continue to do so illegally under the guise of 'trail hunting'. An organisation that works for the conservation of wildlife and the safeguarding of nature should not stand by and allow their land to be used for illegal and cruel activities.
