Fox hunting

A few days ago, there were reports of a fox entering a house in southeast London and attacking twin baby girls whilst they slept. Awful, I can't imagine what the parents must be going through-here's a link to the story for some more detail for you to read.

My problem here is this - the pro bloodsports metalists seem to have decided that this single incident is enough reason to repeal the ban on fox hunting. No right minded individual (or me) would argue against the fact that we need to control the population of foxes, however what we do object to is foxes -or any creature for that matter- being hunted down by red coated buffoons on horseback, blowing horns and leading a pack of beagles to chase the fox to the point of exhaustion before being ripped to shreds. Oh, and they then smear fox blood on the faces of hunt "virgins". Nice.

Here's some foxhunters yesterday, shortly after killing something furry.

Ugh, I was unaware they still did this.

Thanks for the visual.

That's too bad about the girls, but that seems a little strange and out of character for a fox, no? I was kind of under the impression they weren't really aggressive (toward humans anyway). Anyway, that sucks about the fox hunting. In the animals vs. humans debate I almost always come down on the side of animals.

A couple of "Experts" have come out and said that it is very un fox like. Maybe the parents were mistaken?

It seems a very mink thing to do, not very foxy. But two small babies asleep.
