I hate fox hunting because I think it is unbelieveably cruel! I can understand that if someone is a poultry farmer and a fox gets into their hen house then they might have to shoot it to save the lives of their hens. But if they must kill it, then do it with a quick clean shot. To tear a panic striken animal to pieces with a pack of dogs is an act of barbarity that should not be allowed in the twenty-first century.
Some people will say it’s traditional but that is a pathetic argument. It’s the same argument they used to try and justify slavery. If it was traditional to be a peodophile, then would that make it okay to be one? Of course not! Just because something is traditional doesn’t make it right.
And there are those who will say it is a sport. No; tennis, football and rugby are sports. Ripping wild animals to pieces with dogs is not sport; it a an act of gross brutality.
