Help Leinster Hunt Saboteurs get a vehicle and continue to protect foxes from senseless torture and killing
Leinster Hunt Saboteurs are trying to protect foxes which in Ireland are being viciously tortured and killed for 'sport'. Foxes, during hunts, are chased to exhaustion before being set upon and savaged by hounds. This is occurring all over the country, where there are over 130 registered clubs dedicated to this horror, and more hunters per capita than anywhere else in Europe.
Hunt sabs engage in legal, peaceful protest and disruption of these horrific activities by:
• encouraging foxes, through scent, to steer clear of areas where hunting is to take place
• opening up entrances to dens which were previously blocked by hunters, allowing the fox to escape
• encouraging hounds to chase in the wrong direction
Hunt sabs have in the past been subjected to violence by hunters who are appalled by the interruption of their fiendish activities, and often infuriated by the use of cameras and recording equipment which might broadcast the violence and abuse they perpetrate to the wider public. Because of this, hunt sabs are routinely assaulted, robbed, or stalked. The work we engage in is also physically taxing, taking long hours and covering long distances - but to save even one innocent life, sabs will risk all of this and more.
Leinster Hunt Sabs are asking for €5,000 to purchase, insure and tax a vehicle, allowing us to safely travel to and from hunt locations. The ability to quickly and conveniently follow, record, and disrupt hunts gives us an astronomically larger chance of helping foxes to escape and live to see another day - YOUR help gives us this chance. We are a direct action group and not-for-profit, so all proceeds will be used to acquire this vehicle and in the protection of foxes in the Irish countryside.
