GUEST,*Laura* BS: Hunting banned in England/Wales (338* d) RE: BS: Hunting banned in England/Wales 28 Feb 05

Oh puhleaze - yourself!
I've always ALWAYS said that I am not pro-hunt, I'm anti-ban. ALWAYS. And just for the record - I've never been hunting.

Ok - so maybe they don't poison them. So I got a detail wrong. The facts are still the same, although I don't know the exact statistics (I'll look them up in a minute as I'm obviously making it all up) FOXES ARE KILLED IN TOWNS AND CITIES EVERY YEAR, EVERY DAY, BY PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT THEM THERE.
People who don't want them there becasue they mess up their lawns and tear open their rubbish and make a noise and are a general nuisance. They are killed in far bigger numbers than hunts ever did - but becasue people associate hunting with this class-issue, they have a bigger problem with it than with this very effective (whether it's right or not - it's effective) method of fox-control.
Maybe if people didn't take up so much space on the planet with their crappy towns then there wouldn't be a fox problem in every city. (alright - you'll shoot me for that so I'll say most cities)
