England: London – An Insight Into The ‘League Against Cruel Sports’.

 

For as long as hunting wild animals with dogs has existed, people will have been opposed to it.

The League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) was founded in 1924 with the aim of banning fox hunting, stag hunting, otter hunting, hare hunting and hare coursing in the UK.

The League is known for being instrumental in bringing about the Hunting Act 2004 which banned hunting with hounds in England and Wales, yet we are still fighting to protect foxes, hare and deer from illegal hunting which takes place far too frequently across the UK.

Another key campaign is dog fighting, which despite being banned in 1835, still continues on the UK’s streets and out of sight in unused buildings.

Our Project Bloodline operation aims to educate policy makers about the prevalence of dog fighting, investigate the people who take part, and protect the dogs who are used in this terrible activity.
