National Trust votes to end fox ‘trail’ hunting on its land

The National Trust, one of the UK’s largest landowners, has announced the charity will no longer issue licences for “trail” hunting on its land.

The board of trustees agreed to follow an overwhelming vote by members last month that the activity should end.

Opponents, who have for years fought for the trust to ban “trail” hunting, were jubilant.

They argue “trail” hunting is a smokescreen for chasing and killing real wildlife including foxes.

The trust temporarily stopped issuing licences last year after the leak of webinars at which leading hunt figures discussed tactics including how to create the appearance of following scent trails.
