We are your local anti-hunt group for The Northumberland area, in the North East of England. We are a group of passionate volunteers who dedicate our spare time to preventing the persecution of our wildlife.
Our Mission is to stop the persecution of wildlife. One day we will live in a world where we have a real hunting ban, and our wildlife can live in peace. Until that day we will be doing what we can, to prevent illegal hunting, and other forms of wildlife persecution throughout the Northumberland area. Fox Hunting has not gone away, despite The Hunting Act (2004) outlawing the hunting of a wild mammal with dogs.
Make no mistake, if hunts are out hunting, then they are hunting a live animal.
Trail Hunting does not exist, it is just another name for Fox Hunting
We are a group of volunteers who dedicate our spare time to going out into the fields and helping our wildlife, or into the streets and telling people about the realities of so-called trail hunting. The criminal justice system fails to protect wildlife, so it is down to groups such as ours to go out and actively enforce anti-hunt legislation
We are a diverse group all ages, occupations, and backgrounds. What brings us together is a love of wildlife, a passion for what we do, a hatred for the persecution animals face on a daily basis and a strong sense of achieving justice for those who aren't able to defend themselves.
Some of us are experienced activists, and others are new to it. We started the group in March 2020 because there was no anti-hunt group in Northumberland. With eight active fox hunts alone, in Northumberland, foxes were arguably killed, week after week. There was nobody there to help them - until now!!
At the time we were active members of another group. However, we thought we needed to do something to help the Northumberland foxes too - so we set up this group up. We are an inclusive, friendly and supportive group, like one big family, so we are growing bigger and stronger each week.
We are a non confrontational group, who use direct action to help stop hunters and save the lives of wildlife. We also record and gather evidence of illegal hunting. We always act professionally and lawfully, and aim to work alongside law enforcement to bring the perpetrators of wildlife crime to justice.
We live in hope that one day our wildlife will live in peace, and free from harm.
Help us make that a reality.
