Top best answers to the question «Why was fox hunting banned in the uk»
Hunting with dogs was banned in 2005 in reaction to public. They were strongly against the cruelty of wild animals being chased, often to the point of exhaustion, before being purposely set upon by packs of dogs for so called 'sport'.
- Eventually fox hunting (as well as hare coursing and other forms of chasing wild mammals with dogs) was banned in Scotland under the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act 2002, and in England and Wales under the Hunting Act 2004. It is still permitted in Northern Ireland. Why was fox hunting banned? It was deemed to be cruel.
