Picture the scene they you are strolling through the woods, enjoying the day. As it’s been wet recently the air has that slightly damp must smell to it suddenly there is a subtle change you sniff, you know that smell your heart is now starting to beat faster and you can just make out the sound of voices, you start to run but now you can hear the growling and barking behind you it sounds so close, will you make it home where your children are waiting…… just a few more feet when suddenly something lands on you from behind this is quickly joined by more things tearing at you, the pain is unbearable but your fighting back as best you can, just as one of them starts tearing at your throat you look up and see the hunt with triumphant smiles on their faces.
Oh how proud these men and women should be they have watched while their dogs savagely maul and kill the fox which is outnumbered scared, and can do nothing else but run.
Take a moment think how you would feel if you heard on the news that this is how a young mum had been killed, admit it you would be horrified.
As you may have guessed from the above I think that fox hunting is cruel and unnecessary, and it is anything but a sport. I mean let us take the word sport to me it conjures up the image of a competitive game played for pleasure the only winner in fox hunting is the hunt, even if the fox escapes I doubt it would say it had been a pleasurable experience. Let us also take the word sporting which every true sports person aims to be, this is defined in the dictionary as relating or conforming to sportsmanship – fair. How can fox hunting claim this as it is not very fair on the fox who is often outnumbered and definitely not a willing participant.
Yes I have to say I am one of the people who believe that fox hunting should be banned, however I do understand that foxes can be pests and carriers of disease (but can’t also humans) particularly in th
e countryside to farmers, however there must surely be a more human way of tackling the problem rather than what can only be described as torture. A quick acting poison perhaps.
As for those individuals that feel this is their only entertainment what about trying out the hunts where a human is chased and no animals etc are harmed, however if you feel that the true value of the hunt is the blood, and watching something die a painful horrible death then you have my sympathy and pity because you are truly sick and sadistic which unfortunately as this is your nature by choice there is no cure for.
