"One knows so well the popular idea of health. The English country gentleman galloping after a fox -- the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable."

David Cameron 'Sympathetic' To Calls For Fox Hunting Ban To Be Loosened

 




 

Not content with killing badgers in the name of controlling disease, these red coated, Pimms cup drinking dinosaurs want to turn the clock back to the "good old days" when, after galloping round the countryside behind a pack of baying hounds in pursuit of  a fox and watching the animal ripped to pieces by the hounds (amongst great laughter, happiness and celebration from the "hunters"), the master or huntsman will smear the blood of the fox onto the cheeks or forehead of a newly initiated hunt follower, often a young child, and all in the name of "sport". Some presumably will even wish to resurrect the practice of cutting off the tail ('brush'), the feet ('pads') and the head ('mask') as trophies, with the carcass then being thrown to the hounds.

 



Fox hunting, even the watered down practices currently legal in our countryside, are cruel, barbaric and have no place in society. Rather than relaxing the controls on this nauseating spectacle, politicians should be outlawing all such activities including those currently allowed.
