About me

Hunt monitors’ website launched

It’s exactly this kind of action that makes me doubt anti-hunt campaigners’ motives. Surely a group that are truly concerned about the welfare of foxes would be celebrating the fact that they’ve had success in banning the 6% of fox-killing undertaken by fox hunters, and should be gearing up to tackle the remaining 94%, not continuing to run around chasing after the 6%.

It makes me think that they have something against Hunters (which most anti-hunting campaigners vehemntly deny), not support for the foxes. By all means try and support the ban, but don’t encourage all your activists to spend their time doing this if you’ve still got 94% of a problem to tackle. Unless, of course, trapping foxes with wire and allowing them to starve to death, or alternatively sit for hours or days in total fear before blowing it’s brains out with a shotgun is less cruel than letting them be killed quickly by their natural predators.
