It finds that the South West of the UK has the most abuse towards animals. By studying their recorded data. They have not just found that abuse occurs in the South West, they have also found that it is increasing.
Perhaps it is not all that surprising that the South West has the highest amounts of animal abuse, as Fox hunting is one of the areas in the UK, more than other areas, which has support for Fox Hunting.
The South West of England has much more 'Hunting Fox Packs' in England, and probably the wider UK. Therefore, this study not only offers us insight into animal abuse, it offers evidence that there is a correlation between animal abuse and hunting animals. Which is of course common sense, but, now we have evidence to suggest this is the case.
