Alan Jarrett, Chairman of BASC said:Print

“BASC supports amending the exemptions within the Hunting Act to allow more than two dogs to flush foxes to guns. This is a step on the road to achieving resolution of the problems created by the Hunting Act. It also helps secure effective pest control for farmers, which contributes to food security. There is widespread agreement that shooting is an effective form of pest control and this move to amend the exemptions would underline that point.”
