Hunting wild mammals with dogs is illegal as two men in Ince Blundell found out


Two adult males were arrested on 26th September 2020 for hunting with dogs in Ince Blundell.

Police seized their vehicle and equipment. The men have now been subsequently interviewed, which has resulted in a Summons to court for Hunting Wild mammals with dogs.


The Hunting Act 2004 came into force in February 2005 which controlled the hunting of wild mammals with dogs and prohibited hare coursing. It was stated in the High Court Judgment of February 2009 that the statutory aim of the Hunting Act “is to prevent or reduce unnecessary suffering to wild mammals” and that “causing suffering to animal for sport is unethical and should, so far as practicable and proportionate, be stopped”.


The Hunting Act is not an absolute ban on the hunting of wild mammals with dogs and some hunting is permitted under the Act. The High Court Judgment stated that it “recognised the need to …control wild mammals which farmers and others are entitled to regard as pests”.
