    Nay,

    its sadistic how running round a field chasing a fox and then letting hounds rip it to pieces can be classed as "sport"

    the other side of the coin is that by banning it all that will be achieved is the satsifaction of conscience, while people will lose their jobs and tradition will be ended. then the actual problem of foxes themselves.

    there are other alternatives for killing foxes tho

    Also, the fox has a chance to escape. If it's caught its death is instantaneous.

    Yay,

    The media are spouting a lot of nonsense about this at the moment, until you have been hunting it's hard to comment on this. By banning it the countryside will have more problems to face than just a fox problem.

    really? how so?

    i know that now in alaska they are teaching brownie scouts to kill beaver because there blocking rivers and dams and the water is starting to freeze over, and there would be no drinking water or something.....

    but do we have the right to end a persons way of life/tradition? people in the countryside must be getting pissed off at these city living animal rights protestors who have no idea of their tradition and the impact foxes can have on their living (farming etc)

    I'm not denying that there is a fox problem, my question is why do the foxes have to be hunted in such a cruel way

    BTW I live in the country I've been to hunts as a child.
