Fox hunting in Northern Ireland would have been banned had the Foster Bill become law. However, by the time of subsequent hunting legislation in the House of Commons, the Northern Ireland Assembly had been established and the hunting issue had been devolved to that body. A Hunting Bill was introduced into the Northern Ireland Assembly but rejected in December 2010.

the hunting bill was dejected.... but law here is very similar to england scot wales where the rspca and the uspca are concerned... so same rules apply here really...only 1 terrier used to ground at any 1 time....welll thats a must... only nets to be placed at holes .... lurchers aint allowed to kill in a stop end but are when they are on the run.. written permission at all times and the vehicle that your going out in must be taxed and insured lol :yes: ...other than that WORK AWAY ..atb

So basically you can dig it let it run then let the lurcher kill it. And does it have to be written permission?

 

doesn't have to be written, verbal permission's o.k

thanks lads for the info its just good to be abit clearer on the laws of working dogs as they seem to change to suit sometimes. i think the main thing they are looking is if a dog is showing signs of cruelty like one having a dog chewed up with no proper vet care.which to me is correct.doesnt have to be a vet but anyone who works dogs terriers and lurchers should know how to look after a dog that has just been worked or has an injury.

no need to tell them anything other than f**k off. they are not an guarda/police and you are not obliged to answer any of their questions
