Do you know the laws on Hunting?

Posted on | 0 Responses

Current legislation stands that if you are found guilty of illegal hunting, you could be fined up to £5000.

The hunting of certain animals such as foxes, hares and deer are banned but you can hunt under certain conditions.

The stalking and flushing out of animals is allowed but only to control pests and only if the animal is shot as soon as possible afterwards.

Hunting of Rats and Rabbits is ok.

The retrieval of hares that have been shot is ok.

The rescue of wounded animals as long as they weren’t wounded on purpose.

Drag hunting and Trail hunting is also allowed.

If you are guilty of an offence, the court can take away any hunting equipment and also the dogs.

If you let others use your land for illegal hunting, you would also be guilty of an offence.

For further information regarding the laws concerning hunting you should refer to the Hunting Act 2004.
