Fox Hunting is with dogs illegal in the UK but still takes place. (Read Law Here) Dogs rip apart the animals for sport.

A young vixen owes her life to the quick thinking and courage of a hunt
monitor from http://powa.org.uk who literally dived in and grabbed her from amongst the hounds
that were just about to maul her to death..
The young woman was
out monitoring the Old Berks Fox Hounds who met at Elmwood House, Black
Bourton in Oxfordshire. Not long after the hunt moved off , the
Huntsman sent the hound pack into woodland and thick undergrowth.
The hounds found the fox in scrub next to large slurry tanks on the edge of a farm.
Fortunately
for the fox, her "guardian angel" was only feet away. With no thought
for her own safety, the monitor shouted at the hounds as they closed in
on the fox, and running forward, was able to snatch the terrified
animal. She then scooped her up, away from amongst the hounds, which
would in moments have undoubtedly torn the young animal to pieces. The
fox had already been bowled over onto her back, leaving her stomach
exposed.

  • Killing small, defenseless animals is about the manliest thing you can do.

  • Laws don't apply to the rich folk, their friends are running the country. I doubt anything will come of this legally. As for the woman, I truly hope she gets the recognition (not that she probably wants it) she deserves.

    • @cavern Hmmm... What does wealth have to do with anything? Other blood sports, like cockfighting and dogfighting, aren't necessarily done by the rich.

  • The pretentious wastes of skin on the horses make me sick to my fucking stomach. I hunt, and I NEVER take the shot until I am fucking POSITIVE of a kill. I use ALL of the meat, the hides go to a friend who's a tanner, that's RESPONSIBLE hunting. This is a blood sport, for the titillation of douchebags on horses longing for the old days when they could do whatever they pleased with impunity.

      Fair comment, but would you condone shooting that fox considering the fact that foxes are a major pest here in the UK?

      The problem with lethal control...
      Foxes are an extremely well loved British wild mammal and their lethal control is generally frowned upon. It is not something which local councils will involve themselves in. It is illegal to kill a fox using most methods including poisoning, gassing and many types of snare and trap. In addition, these methods will always be ineffective. Foxes are, as mentioned above, territorial animals. There is no such thing More..

      Foxes are far from being a "major pest here in the UK", the facts are that only farmers claim this, and it takes very little investment from them to protect the only livestock Foxes will take (Chickens). Domestic dogs are more of a countryside pest, but by far the worst are humans. Now, I would condone hunting them.

      The Founding Fathers would be proud of your achievements as an American who believes in freedom, and the American way of not kicking in other people's doors to shove your views down their throats while illegally confiscating all their guns...

    • @Poutso Dogs are ANIMALS, just like the FOX, and animals rip each other apart because they're ANIMALS.

      That's what animals in the animal kingdom do. It has nothing to do with men riding horses.

    • @bahowell dogs are domestic animals created by man, and here they have been introduced into an environment that is not their own for no other reason than to attack and kill an animal native to that environment. they don't use the animal, they don't eat it; it is simply killed for "sport".

It reminds me of Canadian Gov used money from tax payers to treat Charles and his second wife, Camilla like their King and Queen. It's the shame on hardworking Canadians.

    • @ValleyBlacksmith fox hunting isn't illegal in the UK - it's just illegal to hunt foxes to the point that they're killed by dogs. They are allowed to be shot. The problem is that in the countryside nobody is there to see if it's dogs or guns that kill the fox. That's what these monitors are there for I guess.
