I happened to scan my NCE (25 January) after having had the morning off, out with the Bewcastle hunt in Cumbria with hounds, on foot and with about half a dozen riders in the countryside around Talkin Fell.
The main thing which strikes me about the 'antis' among your correspondents is that they have not got the faintest idea what they are talking about - and I am not about to enlighten them. The colourful adjectives used betray a completely ill informed attitude, alongside fertile imaginations.
I agree with the view expressed that if you have a problem with killing the fox, then you do not hunt.
The anti-hunting vote is going to destroy a way of life, but will benefit no-one. The legislation is not alone in being about what is imagined to be in peoples minds rather than about their actions. The thought police will come, although hopefully not in my lifetime.
