The campaign is meant to protect animals by encouraging voters to preserve the current laws in place that protect animals, especially in areas of hunting.
The campaign was named after a hit Queen song by May titled “Save Me.”
Besides the recent Wales badger cull controversy, those supporting May’s campaign are also concerned about the 80-year old Hunting Act, which they believe is in danger of being repealed, depending on future election outcomes.
“We believe that there is a grave danger that Britain will soon revert to the barbaric past, when it was legal to hunt down our wildlife with dogs. The current Tory party leadership has vowed, if they win this coming election, to try to repeal the Hunting Act – a law which it took animal-lovers 80 years, and 700 hours of parliamentary debate to bring into effect, by democratic process, in accordance with the will of at least 75 per cent of the population.”
If the law is repealed, it would make legal the hunting of dogs, foxes, hares, stags and other wild animals in Britain.
