Hunting on National Trust land
The National Trust issued 79 licences to unmonitored hunts in 2016 on some of its estates. These licences are for trail hunting, which in most cases is a cover for the illegal persecution and killing of UK wild life. The National Trust refuses to acknowledge that illegal hunting is widespread and they will only act after a successful prosecution, and then the guilty parties are given a paltry temporary ban.
There is clear evidence that hunting activities on National Trust land are cruel, illegal, unauthorised and dangerous to the public, as well as damaging to Sites of Scientific Interest and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Trail hunting is neither a sport nor is it tradition, it is a cover for illegal hunting.
A group of National Trust members have raised a motion to ban trail hunting on National Trust land. The motion will be discussed as part of the agenda at the Trust's AGM on Saturday 21 October 2017 (at the STEAM Museum in Swindon) and then members will be asked to vote.
If you are a National Trust member, you will have received your information about the upcoming AGM. Please use your vote to vote YES for the motion to ban trail hunting on National Trust land. If you are unable to attend the AGM in person, you may nominate another member to vote by proxy on your behalf. Or you may vote online. See short video to find out how to do this. And please VOTE IN FAVOUR of the motion to ban Trail hunting https://secure.ersvotes.com/V2-4-3/(S(e82dfb94-5ea1-4808-ad6b-0504cdc59262AMIBREAAAAAAAA=EDOHxGpxiC-...
