There is a painful truth about disease in the UK countryside. These diseases among farm animals cause death and financial loss on a huge scale. Chris Pitt, deputy director of policy, communications and campaigns at the League Against Cruel Sports, explains.
Darryl Cunnington, a former policeman and investigator for the charity League Against Cruel Sport, suffered a broken neck when attacked by men apparently engaged in preparing for illegal fox hunting. The attackers have been spared prison, reports BRENDAN MONTAGUE
ROGER SWAINE is the most recent recruit to the League Against Cruel Sports team of wildlife crime investigators and started in 2015. Just a year later he was attacked and his colleague left with a fractured neck. Roger explains here why he will continue to investigate illegal hunting
The impact of human behaviour on the environment is well documented but now it seems man has become an evolutionary force in the lives of female Scandinavian brown bears as they change parenting tactics to ward off hunters. CATHERINE HARTE reports
The League Against Cruel Sports argues the conviction of the head gamekeeper of the Buckminster Estate shows that hunts are 'still chasing and killing foxes in the British countryside'. They have asked the public to sign its petition against hunting. BRENDAN MONTAGUE reports
The huldufolk have disappeared from the Faroe Islands, and with them an ancient understanding of nature. They vanished when in the 1950s when the roads and the lights appeared. Now, the local community are coming to terms with further extinctions - and a threat to their own lives from coal pollution. BRENDAN MONTAGUE reviews The Islands and the Whales, out tomorrow.
The effect of hunting on the Amazon rainforest's ecosystem may not be as devastating as previously thought, according to a new study by the University of Connecticut and the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation and Research. BRENDAN MONTAGUE reports
When celebrating our wetlands for World Wetlands Day it is also good to spare a thought for the ducks who often die in them well before their time. A million ducks are shot each year for sport. That should not continue, argues JORDI CASAMITJANA of the League Against Cruel Sports
This Boxing Day hunts will take place across the UK. But over all, 2017 has already been a bad year for those who like to chase and kill animals for fun. CHRIS PITT, deputy director of Campaigns at the League Against Cruel Sports, is on the scent.

Prime Minister Theresa May has made several serious mistakes in her election campaign, but her biggest 'unforced error' of all could be her public support for foxhunting, opposed by 17 in 20 voters. Now a huge march to her Downing Street residence is planned for next Monday to 'Make Hunting History!'
It's election time and the race is on for public support, writes Eduardo Goncalves. So why on Earth did Tory leader Theresa May come out in favour of foxhunting - an activity loathed or disliked by over 80% of voters - at this crucial time, offering MPs a free vote on repealing the Hunting Act? Now let's put pressure on our candidates to keep the law against this cruel, archaic pastime.
Teresa May's promise to bring back foxhunting has proved one of the most unpopular items in the Tories' election platform. So we should not be surprised at the official silence over the TB-infected hounds in the Kimblewick hunt, writes Lesley Docksey. Nor, given the political power of foxhunting landowners, should we be surprised that officials are shrugging off any idea that bad biosecurity in hunt kennels could possibly have anything to do with TB in cattle.
