Please sign the following petition to Nicola Sturgeon leader of the Scottish National Party SNP. Their vote is crucial to help stop the Tories winning the vote. If the SNP do not vote there is a strong risk that hunting foxes will return to the UK after decades of campaigning to end this brutality.
URGENT: Ask SNP to vote against fox hunting next week!
“The UK Government has just announced that MPs will vote NEXT WEEK on whether to relax the ban on hunting wild mammals with dogs in England and Wales – that is, whether to decriminalise fox hunting.
Fox hunting is a cruel bloodsport where poor foxes are chased down with dogs and often torn apart alive before being shot by huntsmen. Foxes control their own numbers and do not need culling.
Keeping fox hunting banned via the vote next week critically depends on whether the Scottish National Party (SNP) MPs vote. The SNP is against fox hunting, and would vote against repealing the Hunting Act. However, because this vote is about laws in England and Wales, and does not affect Scotland where fox hunting will remain banned, the SNP has not yet decided whether it will vote at all.”

Please don’t delay this is urgent the vote takes place this coming Wednesday July 15th
There is no place in a compassionate ethical society for such shocking brutality to any creature. In a progressive society laws should be in place and strictly enforced to prevent such atrocities such as chasing a sentient creature who feels pain and simply wishes to live with a pack of dogs and watching has the poor animal is torn to pieces.
The majority of people in the UK support the hunting ban, 80% say they want the hunting ban to remain, and 85% want deer hunting to stay illegal.
