Changes in the way in which Hunting with Hounds occurs in the UK continues, following the Hunting Act 2004 (introduced by an Emergency Bill, which has only ever been used twice before when the UK was in a state of emergency!).
Some hunts in the UK have sadly closed with Huntsmen losing their livelihood, homes and their way of life, along with the infrastructure needed to support hunting. Other hunts have amalgamated to survive.
In some regions of England it has been reported that hunts are thriving and many hunts have more members now, than previous to the introduction of the Bill and this has resulted in many more people hunting in the UK. However, it remains one of the most divisive issues among the population. Don't be complacent this could happen in other countries.
Other countries across the world hunting is a way of life - a social activity - steeped in tradition. In some countries it is written in their constitution! This is evident by the numerous activites now reflected in our Clients.
The website www.Foxhuntingstories.co.uk was written for people to understand how Foxhunting was carried out - due to the response for Links to this website, it became obvious that the name would require changing to accommodate all. and www.Foxhuntingstories.co.uk is now part of www.BritishTraditionalFieldSports.co.uk - (we also have .com and .eu) our world-wide hosting website.

Is hunting cruel? The short answer is 'No'... Lord Burns (Chairman of the Government Inquiry into hunting) speaking in the Lords debate on the Hunting Bill. March 2001

'it is one of the great constitutional . . . balances of our system to respect and protect the interests of minorities against a populist majority'... Lord Whitty, 2002
