Keep The Ban is working in partnership with the Hunt Investigation Team (HIT) providing funding for their upcoming investigations.

The Hunt Investigation Team are committed to exposing the truth behind fox hunting and other cruel sports.

They are a highly skilled, specialist team with years of experience fighting animal abuse. The Hunt Investigation Team gather evidence to expose cruelty and those who perpetrate it. They work alone, and in partnership with other agencies, using sophisticated surveillance techniques to uncover illegality and bring those responsible to justice. Their evidence is used for prosecutions and to ensure the ban on hunting with dogs remains, is strengthened and is strongly enforced.

HIT have a history of ground-breaking investigations – the most notable of which is the case of the fox cubs fed to hounds by the South Herefordshire hunt. Secret footage was taken by the Hunt Investigation Team of a member of the hunt lifting a fox cub out of a cage and entering the kennels. The expose hit the national headlines and resulted in the hunt disbanding several months later.
