Unnatural deaths of hunt's victims
Kevin Myers says that whenever a stag is killed by the Ward Union Hunt, it is "shot by a hunt marksman, after being cornered by hounds" (Irish Independent, January 14).
This may be the horrendous fate of some of the hunt's deer, but Mr Myers misses several situations in which others have met their deaths.
Most recently, a hunted Ward-Union deer collided with a car, smashed into its windscreen, broke a leg and was put down due to its injuries.
