British Public Opinion On Hunting
This summary of public opinion polls was compiled by Support Hunting Association, a coalition of pro-hunting advocates. It summarizes British public opinion on hunting between 1997 and 2004, concluding that there is minimal public support for a ban on fox hunting.
This report in support of hunting claims that there is no clear public support for a ban on hunting. Support for such a ban has been on the decline since 1997. In addition, authors claim that the general public feels that hunting legislation should be a low priority for government action, and that legislation to ban hunting is rejected by those who know the most about it and by people who live in rural areas.
