Foxing the criminals . . . Lush Bath staff highlight wildlife crime
A mock hunt took place on the streets of Bath this week to push the issue of wildlife crime further up the political agenda.
Staff from health and beauty firm Lush's Bath store dressed as police, foxes and animal rights protesters for the stunt.
The event was organised to highlight fears that crimes involving abuse of the hunting laws are being overlooked, and will continue to be under the new police and crime commissioner system.
Lush and the Hunt Saboteurs Association say they are concerned that the National Wildlife Crime Unit has just 15 staff.

A spokesman for the Lush store said: "We believe that, like us, most of the British public would feel money is better spent protecting animals from cruelty, death and extinction, instead of gathering evidence on peace protests and environmental camps. When the newly elected police commissioners are setting budgets and priorities, they should reflect the concerns of the public and society they serve."
There will be a hustings event for the police and crime commissioners election at the BRLSI in Queen Square at 2.30pm on November 3.
