Humans abuse far more children. Shall we hunt them instead?
I quite liked Brian May's defence of the hunting ban. And Nick Herbert (MP)'s dismal performance.
And what about injuries caused by dogs? And, in fact, encouraging fox hunting may encourage more foxes in urban areas? Etc, etc, etc... We've all seen the arguments. Personally, I happen to support animal rights and I support the animal rights argument in favour of the ban prohibiting hunting foxes as a sport. (I also find it baffling that anybody could reject the concept of animal rights - and I especially deplore some of the weak and breathtakingly hypocritical/contradictory arguments which invariably drip from the mouths of the aristocratic Christian Right on this issue).
Talk about an overreaction. One sensational news-story and somehow the issue is blown out of all proportion... Humans just need to take care where they dump their rubbish so that they don't attract foxes, ants, wasps and other pests/animals.
