THE Scottish Greens have pledged to put a stop to fox hunting after May’s Holyrood election.
Scotland banned fox hunting in 2002, but loopholes still allow hunts to continue. Some 800 foxes are killed in Scotland every year.
The Scottish Greens are hoping to achieve a total ban by revisiting a 2019 Bill which would have closed the loopholes.
“Most people think fox hunting is already banned in Scotland, but loopholes in the law mean that hunting continues much as it did,” Johnstone said.
“It is my intention to close these loopholes and end all hunting with dogs for good.
“Protections for mountain hares came into force in March, but the cruel chasing and killing of foxes with dogs still continues. Let’s put an end to it after May.”
The SNP last year pledged to change regulations after the May 6 election.
