Hunt sabs with hounds

Who are we?

The North West Hunt Saboteurs Association (NWHSA), is an organisation that is dedicated to the saving of the lives of hunted animals by using non-violent direct action.

This week, there will be someone trying to torture and kill innocent wild animals for sport within a few miles of where you live. We're going to be there to stop them...Will you?

Our actions mean the difference between life and death for hunted animals.
