Stop deer hunting in Epping Forest

The City of London Corporation has handed exclusive rights to hunt deer in Epping Forest to a private hunting club.

We appreciate the need to control deer numbers but oppose people hunting our deer for pleasure. The deer population has been successfully controlled by skilled, knowledgeable wardens and we see no reason why this shouldn't continue.

Epping Forest's users and other local people weren't consulted about this and we don't believe it is necessary, appropriate or safe to have armed huntspeople wandering our forest and the surrounding land shooting deer for fun.

Epping Forest Green Party supports the local campaign to stop deer hunting in Epping Forest. For more information visit the Epping Forest Forum website: www.eppingforestforum.com
