Foxes deserve to be hunted
Whilst not advocating cruelty to animals, I do believe in the tradition of fox hunting. The fox dies virtually instantaneously at the teeth of the hounds -- the fox's tiny victims do not.
Have you ever seen a distressed ewe, with her genital tissues cruelly ripped and bleeding, after being mauled by foxes when she's down during a difficult birth?
Have you seen (and heard) her tiny lamb torn bleeding and bleating from the ewe's mangled birth canal? Well I, and many familiar with real country life, have.
