See this: “Hello, we don’t allow illegal activity on our land, and if there’s clear evidence of illegal activity, this should be reported to the police, in addition to reporting to our staff.But if there isn’t any, why warn people about what to do if they see it? Clearly, the Trust can’t pull the wool over the public’s eyes. They have very good eyesight and they understand there’s a massive difference between not allowing it and it not happening.

Explosive revelations contained within leaked Zoom webinars involving those at the heart of the fox hunting lobby appeared to reveal trail hunting is nothing but a “smokescreen” for chasing and killing of foxes and in the wake of that the Trust temporarily suspended trail hunting licences on its land. But only temporarily. It could come back after next month’s AGM.

If you don’t want it to, and you’re a Member, please support the following resolution, submitted by Dr Denise Taylor: “That the members agree that the National Trust will ban trail hunting, exempt hunting and hound exercise on their land, to prevent potential illegal activity in breach of the Hunting Act 2004 and the protection of Badgers Act 1992 and to prevent damage to other flora and fauna by hunts, their hounds and their followers.”

You can vote in person or by post or go to the voting website where you can appoint the Chair of the meeting to vote on your behalf, but it is vital you instruct the Chair how to vote, otherwise it will be left to their discretion, and last time they used that discretion to keep the activity on Trust land. Please don’t let happen this time.
