Well its a well meaning but ridiculous law . You cant blame the police for turning a blind eye . Just too hard to police/get convictions , for all the reasons Excoriator gave . I dont know what the answer is though , short of a complete ban on hunting hounds being off the lead , in groups of more than two , regardless of ownership?
Granny - funny you should say " huge rise in dogs disappearing . Not in this area yet" , this was on FB today
Sadly its not just foxes that are stolen as hound bait, pets are too , for dog fighting .
