‘Cubbing’ is a cruel practice where young hunting dogs are trained up by ripping fox cubs to shreds. Please sign this petition to demand that the UK government and Defra crack down on this illegal activity.
Fox cubs have little chance of surviving a cubbing, because they are trapped above ground in a restricted area. There is no justification for this organised cruelty. Stricter, well-enforced punishments for those who engage in cubbing would act as a greater deterrent.
Please sign this petition now and ask that cubbing be more effectively tackled. If enough people sign, the government and Defra will have to recognise that cubbing is barbaric and unacceptable, and needs to be addressed accordingly.
