I thought this was about a ban on fox hunting? I don't think they mean deer hunting. That has nothing to do with horses whatsoever?

What really gets me as ridiculous is that this was posted just to get everyone riled up, on a form promoting positivity and education.

There was no obvious educational or enlightening value really because this came with no actual story or facts.

A graphic picture was just posted with the "this makes me mad" shpiel and no clue what the picture is really of in the first places.

Heck I would not have even minded had you known exactly what the protest was about, you could have posted something like " hunting ban in UK leads to animal murders" or something and explained the situation to enlighten people to the problem, but the op isn't sure if it is even deer or fox hunting or why this horse was killed, why there was a ban, why it is eing protested so strongly ect. ect.

If there are people in the world that would do such an idiotic thing, then we should be seeing a lot more of these:


You see, we can use shock value as well.

I've read an article on that forever ago. The horse was already dead.

I don't really understand banning the hunt? What's going on with that?

It does mean fox hunting, it was banned in England a few years back and hunters made a bid deal over it. I mean there were kids on the TV crying because they wouldnt be able to ride their ponies any more (urm... yes they would!?!).
They still have fox hunts but no foxs are killed (on purpose), they put the scent on a cloth hidden in a hedge or attach it to a land rover.
The thing about fox hunting is its not guys on horses going round shooting them with guns. They have fox hounds that corner them and rip them apart and the people on horses follow to watch and enjoy the 'lovely' day out killing in the countyside.




Apparently foxs are a pest but they are nocturnal so only come out at night. They hunt chickens (which is the problem) so if people would just put their chickens in at night there wouldnt be a problem.

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Is right, I remember when the ban on hunting with hounds came in someone emailed me and demanded that I protest against the ban or thousands of horses and hounds would have to be destroyed as they would have no use any more :roll:

I told her it was nothing to do with me as I live in Ireland

Any form of hunting with hounds has been banned, fox, deer/stag, and otter hunting were the 3 main type of hunts where people chased an animal across country with a pack of hounds, supposedly as a method of controlling the populations of these 'vermin'...

According to some reports there are now more urban foxes in the UK than rural foxes ... odd how the hounds never come through towns to cull those foxes.

Nowadays they can chase something but the hounds aren't allowed to kill it - but there's no law stopping someone shooting the animal, or using a bird of prey. Hunting hasn't stopped at all, in fact it's apparently more popular than ever. So this ridiculous claim that horses will be killed as a result of the ban is clearly wrong...

Its HARD to keep critters out of chicken houses when they really want something. We've gone through all sorts of measures to make the most secure houses possible for chickens in the past to no avail. It's not quite that simple.
