At last - someone who agrees with me!Kernewek Den said:If they hunted the cats that s**t in my garden I'd definitely be on their side :!: :evil:
What she said!!!Dinie said:I'm absolutely against it. If it were simply a case of they are a pest, then there are other ways of controlling them. But if its just for the sheer pleasure of watching a lone, terrified, most likely innocent, country animal being chased by a pack of drooling hounds and once exhausted, being torn apart alive by dogs, its gotta be just barbaric. :x Foxes have just as much a right to their country life as any other animal or bird. Why pick on them. :cry: :?: If folk are bored down in the west country, get an instrument out and join a band, its much more fun!
My opinion. Not meant to cause offence.
Sorry Neil, but that is exactly what happens. Apparently this is the most humane way because the fox dies quickly as the dogs go straight for the neck. However they are still dogs and however much training they get, sometimes they will get it wrong and leave a fox just about alive, which is always the fox the animal rights guys get to stick on their leaflets.neiltwist said:oh dear, I wonder who's actually been on a hunt here?
I've certainly not, and never want to, but if you think that what happens is that the dogs 'rip apart' the fox, then as far as I'm aware (please note this, I may be horribly wrong), you are sadly mistaken.
Now now, keppler, didn't you learn grammar at school? You shouldn't use a double negativeKeppler said:I reckon they should replace foxes with corrupt politicians..
