Uk: Rock Guitar Legend Gives Full Support to Uk Anti-Hunt Campaign


Queen star is to front anti-hunt campaign

Aug 27 2009 by Andrew Forgrave, Daily Post

QUEEN guitarist Brian May has agreed to be the patron of a new anti-hunting group based in North Wales.

The group, Wales Against Animal Cruelty, was set up earlier this year by Rhyl activist Judi Hewitt to fight Tory plans to repeal the ban on hunting with dogs.

“I’m delighted that such a high-profile celebrity has agreed to Šlend his name in support of Šthe work I do,” said Judi.

“My campaign against the Tories is going really well and I’ve now delivered in excess of 2,600 leaflets.

“This is just the start – campaigns will increase as we draw closer to the General Election.”

Brian May agreed to lend his name to the campaign after learning of new Countryside Alliance plans, unveiled this week, to license hunts.

The Tory-backed strategy includes a new Hunt Regulatory Authority (HRA) to police hunts.

Every hunt would have to sign up to the HRA, under which entire hunts could be banned and packs of hounds de-registered – though this ultimate sanction is unlikely.

Under the plan, all hunting would be governed by six rules, including a requirement to avoid “unnecessary suffering” and to respect landowners.
