From the 18th February 2005, hunting a wild mammal in England and Wales should have effectively been banned as the UK Parliament passed a new law onto the statute books. The hunts said all along that they would either ignore it, blatantly break it or find ways around it to allow them to continue hunting as normal.
The invention of trail hunting was the hunts answer to the Hunting Act. It gave them the necessary alibi and muddied the waters enough to make prosecution extremely hard. No other law has a burden of proof set so high so even when the police and CPS are willing to investigate and prosecute, there is no such thing as an open and shut case as the Countryside Alliance and hunting governance will throw large amounts of money at their defence.
