Show your support for hunting with a new badge from the Countryside Alliance.
The Countryside Alliance have launched a new bespoke metal badge to support, 10 years on from the enforcement, the repeal of the Hunting Act.
Henrietta Rutgers of the Countryside Alliance’s hunting campaign said: “This badge is a celebration of hunting and signifies the strength of this great tradition which continues to survive ten years on from the introduction of The Hunting Act. All proceeds from the sale of this badge will go directly to the Hunting Campaign which continues to fight for repeal of this unjust and unworkable law.”
The Hunting Act came into force on 18 February 2005, but 10 years on hunts have not folded and have adapted to find new ways to hunt within the confines of the current legislation. The Countryside Alliance expects around a quarter of a million people to support their local hunts on Boxing Day.
Badges cost £5.
