I MUST thank Joe Duckworth for his letter in Saturdays Echo for writing a wonderful appraisal on the issue of hunting wild animals.

I wonder how this abominable activity can still take place when there is a law forbidding it.

Living in our wonderful New Forest for most of my long life, it amazes me that these horrible people still get pleasure in this activity.

On most issues when one flouts the law I ask how can they still get away with the act of breaking the law?

As a founder member of Ukip I now hope my party will take positive action on this issue.
