    your obviously not from the country side, you just see a fox as a cute, fluffy animal. In the eyes of everyone in the country, it's a disease-ridden, mindless killer who will kill your chickens for fun. In the same way, people still kill them for fun, but also because they are a pest/vermin.

    People fox hunt all the time anyway, it's just making it legal would make it more fun again
    Fox-hunting is an inhumane way of management of the fox population. All this oh they eat my chicken's excuse is just a farce for the rich and priviliged to participate in an absolute immoral and disgusting "sport"/

    Firstly, don't make assumptions about me because I'm against fox hunting. I AM from the countryside, thank you very much. And don't make assumptions about other people in the countryside, too, as the vast majority of people also from the countryside that I know are also against it. It's not a mindless predator, it's in its nature to kill. It's a predator, it's what it evolved to do. http://www.wildlives.org.uk/2006_upd...oxes/pests.htm

    And pray do tell me. What on Earth is so fun about sending dogs to kill an animal, watch it being torn to shreds, bloodied, and everything else? It's disgusting, and I'm genuinely shocked that you make the argument that it's fun. :eek:
    Seeing as pretty much the whole of my village is in support for it, and a lot go hunting, I'd say it's popular. It is needed as foxes are predators, they kill animals which affects farmers lives. Fox hunting is a fine british tradition and is also necessary. I'd say killing things for no reason other than being in your nature is mindless, and killing them for the reason of them being disease-ridden pests is justified.

    1) So they may carry diseases, but if you even bothered to read the link I gave you, you will notice that you cannot catch diseases from foxes and they're not mindless biters- they'll only bite if you threaten them.
    2) Making chicken coops more fox proof will reduce chicken casualties. Let's not forget that foxes are very intelligent and it's easy for them to manipulate coops.
    3) Yep, in your village. Not necessarily in others. The vast majority of people are against hunting.
    4) It's not needed. No killing of an animal is needed.
    5) Fine British tradition!? Yes, so it might be tradition but times move on.
    6) Even if it was justified (which it's not), it's a barbaric way of killing an animal. I don't know how people can get their kicks out of killing an animal when it's completely unnecessary. It's sick.

    EDIT:Oh, and your argument that a fox is a mindless killer. You are a mindless killer if you're killing something you're not going to eat or use and are doing it for fun.

    Good day.

    yet again you fail to see why people kill them, to save their animals.

    I was one kids that slipped though the cracks. My council isn't run well department wise. It's wasn't the entire councils vote, it was the housing departments fault. If at 14 I knew that writing or going to see my local MP would help me then I would have. I only know this fact now at months off 17.
    Was it a labour run council?

    Fix everything they messed up on in the last five years.
    They've been fixing the problems created by Labour and led us out of recession. There's a reason they have a majority and the other parties have all essentially been crushed except SNP and to a lesser extent UKIP. Although like a religious sect, without their charismatic leader, it is inevitable they will lose influence as well in the foreseeable future

    I think it might have been yes, but the MP at the time retired short after I can't actually remember if he was a labour MP.

    If you think that is why they had a majority and essentially won the election, the level of naivety you have is astonishing.

    I know this? It's not hard to know that. You asked me who the local government was and I told you....I don;t see your point?

    Your local labour council failed you.

    If you're going UK be angry, be angry at the labour council.

    Again I don't see your point?

    I never said I wasn't angry at the Tory's for what happened to me. I was using myself as an example. My council failed to fine me a home when I was homeless yes. The conservative government are part of the reason I got into that situation but I really really don't want to go into that because it's still very raw for me even though it was years ago.
