So there has been a lot of "debate" recently in the UK over the ban of fox hunting after minister David Cameron attempted to repeal the fox hunting ban. Basically a bunch of upper class, pretentious wankers think they should have the right to hunt foxes and us normal people think it's completely inhumane and pointless. I mean to be honest it's less about the actual fox hunting and more about some stupid class war that some cling to in this day in age (which in itself is pathetic).

The foxes are hunted down by a pack of dogs and men on horseback with riffles. (That's hardly fair is it. It's not even sporting it's just mindless slaughter) I could maybe understand if fox populations were heavily inflated and were having an impact on the eco system, but they aren't...

What's your outlook on hunting? Honestly i think it's kind of stupid, there is no need for hunting as farms exist. The only exception i can see for this is a camper fishing or hunting for food (and even then it's a push), otherwise it is pointless savagery. The idea of hunting for sport just baffles me also, while i'll happily eat a steak i wouldn't want to go out into a creatures natural habitat and screw around with it by killing innocent animals for no gain other than a little bit of entertainment.

I'd like to see David Cameron put in a fox suit and hunted down, see how he likes it.

Just look at that face, why would you want to kill this little guy. :(

I hate it & I find it pointless.
You should only hunt/kill for your survival.
Not for fun/your sick enjoyment of killing small animals.

Fox hunting is terrible, especially since they train dogs to do the killing. Rich people do it as a sport which makes it more wrong.
Why was David Cameron even re-elected as PM? I see a lot of baby foxes around, makes you wonder if its parents were killed. Fox hunting be/stayed banned. This country is just as bad as the rest killing innocent animals for fun or body parts.

I used to enjoy hunting, but I ate what I killed.

If you're just killing for sport, it is wrong.

Cute faces have nothing to do with it.

i'll do pest control as in hunt rabbits to eat o and if one of our cattle legs falls threw one of there holes the'll break their legs and you have to put the cattle down then. And dairy cows are very valuable and is our income.

I think hunting should only be done for survival. Only other time id find it acceptable is in those situations where an animals population is out of control and poses a threat to the ecosystem.

I find hunting for sport disgraceful, but if it's subsistence hunting, I have no problem with that.

If a person actually hunts for food, I don't think it's wrong to hunt. Straight up killing for sport is absolutely stupid since all the person does is waste animals' lives for nothing.

Killing for sport is fucked up

Killing for what is alright *HOW DO YOU THINK YOU GET CHICKENS , COWS , *

quite a touchy subject indeed!

I live up in a rural estate in NE scotland, and I've hunted all sorts of animals (not foxes though, its something we never touch). The dogs are only there to bring back small animals like hare etc

Another point is we eat everything we shoot...literally everything gets used including the bones which are used in soups (their juices anyway).

You may say that it "drives wildlife numbers down", it certainly doesn't! Sometimes I'll go on a walk around some fields...hare, rabbits, pheasents, foxes, feral cats...too many to count.

(to the foxes) I personally think that the only reason they should be killed on purpose is to keep livestock safe (same reason dogs can be shot), other than that people can only do it for "entertainment"...

I like to hunt,
families here in Texas
still hunt for food during
the winter because
some people are in especially
remote places.

I don't agree with mindlessly
killing animals though.

You eat what you kill
or you don't kill at all

cept for hogs,
kill 'em all

There's not really much of an argument for fox hunting. Not even the "they're pests" argument because they eat rabbits, a much bigger pest.
