Every autumn in the UK, fox-cubs are used to train young hounds to hunt foxes. The baby foxes are torn apart by dogs until they are lifeless.
This illegal practice, called 'cubbing', has been exposed by animal welfare groups as common practice. But it should not be left up to activists to expose these crimes. The police and government need to take more action to stop the cruelty. There needs to be more investigation into suspected hunters, and stricter sanctions for those who are found guilty.
Please join us at the demonstration in Westminster TOMORROW lunchtime to protest against cubbing. There will be speakers from League Against Cruel Sports, Badger Trust and the Hunt Investigation Team. After speeches, we will hand over the Care2 petition of 225,000 signatures to the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).
When: Friday 30th September 2016 at 12:30pm.
Where: Old Palace Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3JY (map).
We need to show as much outrage against this abhorrent cruelty as possible. Bring placards and fox masks, or just bring yourself! The demo is expected to last approximately one hour. Will you join us?
Hope to see you tomorrow,
