Regarding the ongoing debate on fox hunting, I totally agree that the fox is a pest and if it gets among your hens it will destroy the lot.

It is also a wild animal, so if you put your hands near them it will bite you.

However, none of this justifies chasing a living creature across the countryside to satisfy the blood lust of a small minority. Anyone who derives pleasure from this practice needs to take a long hard look at themselves.

I am not an ignorant townie but someone who was brought up in the countryside and whose family have worked on the land for generations.

Not everyone who lives in the countryside condones cruelty.
