What the Fox?

Sponsored post

In 2004, the Hunting Act was passed which made hunting with dogs for sport illegal in England and Wales. Ever since then those that have wanted to keep hunting have campaigned for a repeal, or overturn, of the ban.

Even though the Coalition Agreement includes a promise for a free vote to repeal the Act, the Government seems intent on amending the Act using a Statutory Instrument (SI), a type of legislation that can be used to push changes through Parliament with less scrutiny than a full vote on repeal would require.

David Cameron knows that a straight vote to repeal the hunting ban would fail in Parliament. Amending an Act is much easier than attempting to overturn it and an abuse of the democratic process. If the SI is approved, this will essentially overturn the ban on hunting wild mammals with dogs, something we cannot allow to happen.

Please contact your MP today and urge them to vote against this devious attempt to bring back cruelty.

    Guido, you sound like a Londoner. I’m beginning to tire of the constant “London is the best city in the world” piece, because the focus of this country is London. There are, you may not like to believe it, those of us who live a damned long distance from the capital, but we do want a small piece of ownership of the legislation.
    Fox-hunting is supported, by the majority, outside our big towns and cities. Why? Because we live in the countryside and spend time and effort, with passion, caring for it and protecting it.

    If the anti-hunting legislation had any animal welfare purpose, it would be credible.
    It doesn’t.
    It was just ‘we don’t like them so we will stop them doing things the that they do’.
    Good riddance to bad laws.

    If we are forced to have Halal slaughter in this country and not have the meat labeled so we can avoid it in the supermarket then we can put up with hunting with dogs.

    The people against hunting with dogs on cruelty grounds won’t dare take a stand against halal so why listen to them?

    Do the Tories want to win the next election or not?

    Tony Blair invaded Iraq and caused the death of 1/2 million Iraqis yet was re-elected because he also ba*nn*ed fox-hunting. Dead babies or dead foxes? No contest for the bed-wetters. Foxes have priority all day long.

    I don’t give a fuck about foxes. You can dig them out and beat them to death with bricks for all I care. Same as dogs and cats. I just don’t give a fuck. But bedwetters do. And bedwetters vote.

    Plus, if you lose the next election – and this won’t help – then presumably Labour will just reverse the decision again with another SI. So all you’ll have done is legalise fox-hunting for a single season.

    What’s the point?

    Stupid prats on horses, chasing foxes with dogs, just to kill for sport. What sort of society is that? Kill an animal for fun…. what type of person are you? It is now the 21st century. As a species we should have progressed to one where killing for fun is long outlawed. OK for ancient kings in Robin Hoods days. THEY knew no better. But in this day and age…to kill for fun in the name of sport…. how sad a specimen must you be??????????? Like sending children up chimneys, this practice belongs in history.
    And this …’Fox-hunting is supported, by the majority, outside our big towns and cities..’ I do not think so pal. Polls show majority over and over again even in the country side oppose hunting to kill for fun. Here IN THE country side WE oppose killing for fun. WE recognise that human kind has matured in most places. Sad that there are still a few who are Neanderthal in their thinking. But they too will die off.

    … born & bred and I agree with you.

    The ban never had the support of the people of this country. Blair only introduced it as a sop to his back-benchers and it was forced though using the Parliament Acts (thanks to Capt Apollo for reminding me of that) when this was never what they were designed for.

    Also the ban does not work and may well have caused more suffereing to foxes.

    Exactly. Plus, there were several studies done for Blair’s government that showed that in rough, mountainous areas, such as Wales, the Lake District, the Highlands, etc., hunting with dogs was a far more reliable than shooting.
    This was conveniently ignored when they rammed the legislation through.

    The purpose of fox hunting is pest control. Doesn’t mean the participants can’t enjoy themselves, but the anti-hunt brigade seem to think that those involved only did it for a bit of fun at the weekend. Ignorant pillocks.

    As we are finding out from the badger cull, shooting them (badgers but applies equally to foxes) is nothing like as binary as foxy-loxie getting caught by the hounds. There’s no reports of foxes only getting half eaten and crawling away to die.

    If you’re comfortable with the idea that foxes are vermin and need controlling then taking your hounds for a nice ride in the country is as good a way to control them as any else. Hounds have to eat too.

    4. No
    5. Therefore, the only objection is that those who hunt (aasumed to be redfaced toffs to a man and woman) enjoy it i.e class hatred
    6. How about if the fox shooters put on redcoats and start to enjoy it too? then presumably they would have to be banned and the foxes poisoned?
    7. Vast majority of people eat meat, wear shoes etc. so therefore indirectly anyway enjoy the result of animals being killed

    Our local hunt goes out two or three times a week in season. One of my daughters friends is well into it. She’ll go hunting and then be back in time to go to school. That’s how early these loonies are up. And if anybody thinks they’re getting up at 4am or 5am just to chase a runner with a scent then I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    These hunts are, how we say, ‘connected’. That’s why, despite fox-hunting still blatantly going on so few prosecutions actually take place.

    “Fox-hunting is supported, by the majority, outside our big towns and cities. Why? Because we live in the countryside and spend time and effort, with passion, caring for it and protecting it.”
    So, if the majority of us outside the big towns and cities support it lets have a targeted referendum avoiding the big towns and cities, that way you might get hard evidence that it is “supported by the majority.” Round these parts there are a lot of farmers who will not allow the hunt onto their land. The same farmers that shoot foxes when they see them.

    And they don’t do it to eat or survive either, they do it for sheer inbuilt nastyness.

    Local RSPB reserve had a cctv nesting cam of a Hen Harrier family (One of the rarest birds in Britain) and captured Mr Fox popping in and shredding the chicks. Then the Mum.

    Didn’t eat them of course, it was just sport for the fox.

    Very few people ever take glory in the kill. Used to control a serious pest to farmers with livestock and chickens, it is still the most efficient way of killing foxes. The shooting mob are simpletons who also haven’t bothered to understand an issue before deciding. It usually ends up with an injured animal escaping, whereas a hunt usually ends up with an escaping fox. The ‘sport’ is the riding and the control of hounds, not the kill, which is a mere necessity of country life for people who care for and about animals. Rather than those townies and Lefties who sit at home and make decisions based on no knowledge whatsoever. The hunting ban and the Iraq war, the only legacies of Blair (with the debt being down to his henchman Brown). Brilliant.

    Aside from the practice of blooding young kids, how many dog, horses and huntsman/women does it take to kill one fox? Far from keeping fox numbers under control, is it not the case that your class just love the blood-letting and killing?

    Man is the only natural predator,he controls foxes.The more food available the more foxes breed. Hence a lot more urban foxes breeding,because too many urban men and women leave food waste and takeaway leftovers in the streets.They then complain when foxes enter the houses and gardens searching for food.

    Shooting is only more humane if you kill the fox outright. If wounded, the fox faces a slow agonising death. Ditto with poisoning. The Hunt, as unsavoury as it may be to many people (and I certainly have no desire to take part in such a thing), is probably still the best way to keep numbers under control.

    It is still legal to use a pair of dogs to flush out foxes for shooting. It seems to be illegal to use the dogs to capture a wounded (shot) fox, whereas this seems to be legal for other animals. Indeed no reason to go down to the fox’s level.

    Dont be stupid High Dudgeon. Cruelty is cruelty whatever the status of the victim in a human defined hierarchy. Only some sort of perverted sadist would fail to realise that . It is not a question of choosing a fox or a dog over a human it is a matter of opposing all cruel practises whoever carries them out and whatever the victim may be. That is morality, not convenience.

    Not true if reliable polling is carried out. May be true in the car park of the “Dog and Duck” on hunt day but overall little difference in opinion between town and country when efforts are made to ensure integrity in the polling. Shame a perversion of poll results is the only way to present a claim of support for the perverted.

    I doubt if linking “What the Fox” to this website is seriously expected to change the views of those who usually look at it.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
