Hunting ban has little impact

by Captain Oates


I was not particularly surprised to discover that the recent ban on hunting with dogs has had little negative impact on: -

i) people's desire to hunt
ii) the number of foxes killed


It seems that the hunt meets held this Saturday (19th) actually attracted massively inflated numbers of followers. The tally of foxes caught reached almost 100 - showing little change from the previous week's bag.

I was not surprised to find this article in the Telegraph. In it is a quote from actor Jeremy Irons, with whom I agree strongly. He makes the point that this anti-hunting legislation is merely the thin end of the wedge.
