Campaign: To get fox hunting banned in Northern Ireland

I am determined to make hunting with dogs illegal in Northern Ireland. I'd like our decision makers to instead consider better ways of controlling the animal population where required.

 

I live in a rural area and we are surrounded by wildlife. A family of foxes used to play in our garden at night but they were killed by fox hunters. 

 

I did some research into the issue and found out that Northern Ireland is the only country in the UK where it is still legal to hunt foxes with packs of dogs.

 

It made me question why Northern Ireland should be any different to England, Scotland or Wales. 

 

I made some fox masks with Fixers because I believe the subject does not get enough publicity. I hope that my campaign will lead to decision makers giving fresh consideration to banning hunting with dogs.
