Media coverage of fox hunting in Scotland

Media running pieces today about fox hunting in Scotland.

This has been going on for many, many years and will continue until real action is taken.

Strong legislation is needed but this still leaves the issue of enforcement. The behaviour of some elements within Police Scotland towards hunt monitors raises serious questions on their impartiality.

If you want to stop these characters pressure your MSPs to not only change the law but ensure it’s properly applied.

And support your local sab group.

Great support for our slaughterhouse CCTV campaign in Glasgow

Tremendous support for our slaughterhouse CCTV campaign in Glasgow today. Thanks to everybody who passed on their messages demanding that the Scottish Government bring about legislation.

In typical fashion Layla insisted in putting her 10 bob’s worth in too.

Fox hunting consultation on cards

Umpteen empty promises later a public consultation on the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act is apparently pending.

This is the law that ‘banned’ fox hunting. If you want an example of grandstanding, but effectively unworkable legislation you need look no further.

Some of the MSPs who let this shambles slip through are still in the chamber. Please get it right this time.

Finally

Good to see some other Scottish animal organisations catching up with SfA and finally bringing themselves to support legislation for mandatory abattoir CCTV.

It only took you how many years? Amazing how quickly some jump the wall when they see the wind changing direction.

Don’t worry, we and the rest of the public have already handled all the hard graft. Better late than never though.
