Hunting Act fails to collapse in court

When the ban on hunting with dogs came in (years late and after several attempts to compromise, rebuffed by the ‘sport’), we were told confidently by the supporters of getting dogs to rip animals to bits for the enjoyment of people in silly coats that it wasn’t too much of a defeat for them.

They would ‘defy the ban’. When challenged, the gaping holes in the legislation will become apparent and the ban will fall. The aristocracy and their hangers on will prevail over the ‘jealous’ proles.

Except that this hasn’t really happened. The BBC reports that two men from the Quantock Staghounds have been convicted under the Hunting Act.
