Since hunting using hounds to kill has been banned in Scotland (two years now) more foxes have been killed - almost twice as many in fact - and there are the same number of hunts. (BBC Radio this evening).

As I understand it in Scotland the dogs are allowed to "flush out" the fox which is then shot using people on driving around on quad bikes.

The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable is actually American football.

Quad bikes? Good to see the old traditions kept up, eh?!

I think that says more about the bullshit values of the pro-hunters than anything else. They're not prepared to drag hunt bcause that's not the "traditional" way it's done, but they're quite happy to teararse around the countryside on quad bikes.

And now they're dragging in unemployment and loss of housing for hunt "servants" (sic), human rights, unlawful use of parliamentary and constitutional powers... call me an old cynic, but did anyone notice any of these people, or our illustrious house of lords, getting excited over similar "abuses" with reference to the miners, shipbuilders, steelworkers or deep sea fishermen? What's so bloody special about the Rodneys who do it to hounds?

We have plenty of foxes in our town, and noone feels the urge to chase them to exhaustion and death.

Laura try to get yourself a life. It's an issue of animal cruelty.

The legal bids are clutching at straws. Its banned, accept it.

Now that it has been proved that fish have brains how soon will the government ban coarse fishing as being cruel? Not in a million years - too many of their supporters enjoy that one. Fox hunting has been banned because it is seen as an upper class interest. I have no strong feelings about it either way - I just think that this is the most hypocritical government that I have ever known.

I disagree with fishing Jacqui, but would not bother with banning it, as it has a tradition of 'one for the pot'. And can be a source of non factory farmed food for a non veggie, which doesn't include myself.

Hunting on the other hand, is focussed on cruelty from the outset.

Laura, if you find something lovely and cute, why advocate terrorising it to death?

The disadvantages of a ban far outweighh the advantages in my view.

Yeh well I guess if thats really all Oscar Wilde amounts to in your eyes....an obese paedophile.....I feel sort of sad for you.

On a brighter note. Lets hope Charles and Camilla make a stand about hunting , carry on, and they get slung in jail. that really would brighten up 2005 for me.

Unfortunately unlike in Wilde's day they don't have hard labour. Now that would be some sort of new experience for people who know their station in life and that of everybody else's.

Charles's comments and the widespread reaction to them, of course merely underline what I was saying in another thread about this banning of hunting just being a piece of class revenge for all the humiliations of the Thatcher era.

My god if ever a class asked for it....

The total failure of the pro hunting lobby to take on board the point of view of the majority has been astounding - given that they must have the best legal brains in the country on their side. They have been very badly advised.

they keep repeating that hunting isn't cruel, which is an argument they have lost - the majority has decided otherwise. They should have moved on to the point that yes it may be cruel, but other cruel activities are permitted in our society and ours should be one of them - months ago. I really can't understand it.

The hare and hound are most enjoyable sport.

Thankfully, they have not banned the carnage wrecked on a hare...by a well bred hound.

However, if the Brits allow this current ban to persist....it is not long until the peasant-class will also pay their dues.

If the fox is bothering your chickens, just shoot it. Or trap it and release it far away. Why run the poor thing to death? Why trample over other people's crops and land?

Now if the hunters did it bareback -- no saddle, no stirrups, not even a blanket, with a hackamore for bridle and reins -- maybe I'd change my mind.

In the US, foxes are, unfortunately, one of the animals that can carry rabies. Were I to be approached by a fox (or any other mammal) which was NOT afraid of me, had a drugged appearance, etc., I would certainly do my best to kill it. Rabies is not a nice way for an animal or a person to die.
