Wonder if they will show them what the lovely dogs do to the fox?
This is something I find medieval that should stay in the past. It really says a lot about someones manhood who does this.. Riding around on a big horse wearing a stupid outfit while chasing a tiny fox... Can't they just buy sports cars and act like egotistical muppets without causing harm like most men with that problem.
I'm really disgusted by this if you can't tell.
I just reread the article and I always find it really pathetic that they call this a sport?!! What a stupid thing to class this barbaric 1 sided BS as.
Sports are supposed to be a challenging event, not bullying and torturing an innocent creature to death. (I know foxes can be a pest, but that's our fault, not theirs)

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
The article is sad but predictable. In the face of increasing opposition to "sport hunting" the hunting industry has set it sights on society's most credulous constituents; children. Gotta get 'em while they're young!
"A sport may be defined as a contest between two, or more, parties who test their normally equally matched skills. But there are no equally matched parties in bird shooting. What characterises killing for “sport” is the unequal nature of the encounter, as witnessed by the rate and ease of the kills. Against guns, birds have little chance to escape, and most don’t or, if they do, die of their wounds. There is no such thing as the “sport” of killing, only humans enjoying themselves at the expense of animal life and suffering. It deserves the greatest moral censure." - Andrew Linzey
But there is an alternative to this appalling cruelty.
Don't let these sick animal abusers get the ban on hunting with dogs repealled.
If you want to see what fox hunting is really all about then simply do some googling.
Support the League against cruel sports if you want to oppose this odious cruelty.
Didn't Britain need to import foxes because they wiped out all the native ones? Should have taken the hint.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
