Thread Name: BS: Hunting banned in England/Wales
Subject: RE: BS: Hunting banned in England/Wales
The experts (not self-appointed - see the link) consulted for the Burns report were, sadly, not my friends. Neither are the 500 members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons who wrote that hunting was "the natural, balanced, biological method of controlling wildlife, proven over centuries...Hunting by hounds is the most natural and humane way of controlling the population of all four quarry species - fox, deer, hare and mink - in the countryside."
Frankly, I'd rather place my trust in their informed views than in your ill-informed assertions.
