WHILST reading through the press, I have the feeling that the subject of fox hunting is to arise again – I thought the Government had put that one to bed. Wrong again.

What disturbs me is what sort of people are they that like to chase a creature to exhaustion and then tear it apart with dogs.

Do they get great satisfaction, men and women, or a sadistic delight at death so cruel? As a non participant I worry that such people exist.

The containment of the fox they claim is a clean way to help the farmer etc.

The fox is denied its natural food, the rabbit, because of myxamatosis introduced by man. It is a natural scavenger, not of its own makings.

It is a natural predator it will eat practically anything. There are better ways of exterminating vermin.
