|Hare hunting the facts|
The history of venery, the science of hunting with hounds, dates back to Ancient times. It is expressed over many centuries in many countries in its own mythology, its own literature, its art, its traditional songs and its place in rural culture and way of life. Until the introduction of the Hunting Act 2004 it fulfilled an important and unique role in the management of our wildlife.
The evidence is clear that a 'hands off’ approach does not result in a balanced and healthy wildlife population. Man has a responsibility to manage and preserve the present man-made countryside and to preserve the health and vigour of our wildlife.
