Crying Wolf July 2014
So, the Ministry of Justice has released figures which show that the number of prosecutions under the Hunting act is at its highest. The opponents of hunting have leapt upon this much like a hound with a wounded hare and have convinced themselves, if no one else, that this provides irrefutable proof that the Act is successful in controlling their hated hunts.
