Follow the Fox Tour on Twitter

The Fox Tour is well and truly underway, and the response from the people of Corby was fantastic. They are absolutely concrete in their condemnation of any attempt to repeal the Hunting Act.

Anyway … we can’t update the blog as frequently as we can Twitter, so if you’re on there already you can follow the League at @LeagueACS, and use the #foxtour hashtag. We’ll be uploading photos via twitpic too, so you can stay much closer to the action!

The Fox Tour begins!

From now until polling day, the League’s Fox Tour will be visiting constituencies up and down the country to talk to candidates and the public about repeal of the Hunting Act. Right now, our team are in Corby in Northamptonshire, for the first outing of the fox, promoting our Keep Cruelty History campaign.

Each day we’ll visit a different constituency where hunting appears to be a significant issue. Corby lies close to a number of hunts, including the Pytchley and the Woodland Pytchley, and yet we know that the public here don’t want to see a return to legal fox hunting, stag hunting, hare coursing and hare hunting.

Over the course of this afternoon, we’ll be trying to track down the Prospective Parliamentary Candidates for Corby, to find out their views on hunting. We’ll also be talking to people around the constituency to find out their views too. And all this will be published in a video blog which will be online tomorrow morning.

Today Corby, tomorrow … it’s a secret! Check out the blog at midday tomorrow to find out.

PS: While we were doing these publicity shots yesterday morning, a Land Rover with Countryside Alliance stickers in the back window shouted obscenities at us. We must be doing something right!
