That this House celebrates the first anniversary of the implementation of the Hunting Act 2004 and the end of the gratuitous cruelty of traditional hare-coursing, stag hunting and foxhunting; congratulates the hunts who changed to drag hunting, eliminating the prolonged pursuit and barbaric deaths of defenceless animals; is delighted that the Act did not destroy 35,000 jobs or the economy of the countryside nor lead to the putting down of thousands of hounds and horses; regrets that some compassionate concessions in the Act have been exploited to continue some blood sport activity; understands the cautious approach of the police in the past year but now calls for rigorous vigilance and prosecutions of breaches of the Act; and anticipates further advances in the welfare of game birds and circus animals and is confident that no future legislators will bring back the cruelty inherent in traditional hare-coursing, stag hunting and foxhunting.
