Three British Hunts Face Prosecution under the Ban

Three hunts face prosecution for incidents which occurred last season that allegedly violated the terms of the Hunting Act of 2004: the Fernie and Sinnington Foxhounds and the Quantock Staghounds.

The trials, which are expected to take place this autumn, will be prosecuted based on surveillance evidence provided to prosecutors for the Crown by the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) and the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).
