    Since there is'nt a thread and right now it's at it's peak.

    Lets talk about fox hunting and why it should/should'nt be banned

    Personally I say ban it

    Arguements for this just to start off
    I'm actually interested in what people in other countries think

    Foxes are vermin and need to be kept under control
    True, but they don't have to be chased for miles and then torn to pieces by the dogs.

    Hunting is a great tradition of English upper class
    True, so was Hanging people.

    It gives the dogs a purpose
    Until their 3 y/o and considered "Too slow" , so they are destroyed.

    I look forward to the day when all unnecessary cruelty to animals, for the sake of so-called entertainment, is abolished.

    I think it's high time the Spanish had a long hard look at themselves, because in my opinion bullfighting is one of the worst atrocities to take place in a so-called civilised country.

    My stance... i know hobbes will call me a carebear.

    Hunting and eating what you kill...fine, that's nature's way and nature is balanced.

    Hunting just for sport and the thrill of the kill.. Arrogant and shows the lowest side of mans attitude to nature.

    Of course i swat flies and don't eat them but hey they come from mars

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I agree with bull fighting being bad, but at least every so often the bull gets his own way

    Foxes don't stand a chance, it's barbaric and brutal for all concerned except the Hunters themselfs.

    Aparently it even if the vote passed today it will still need another vote of some sort in the new year, so it will be a while yet unfortunately.

    Yes it is necessary, but not the way it's done. A single shot would take out a fox quite easily and quick.
    Tell me other than entertainment why they have to wear battle gear and chase an animal weighing no more than 30lbs , and use dogs to catch it and rip it limb from limb.

    What would happen if people started doing that to cats or stray dogs?

    Yes it is, I don't like it, I went a few times as a kid and felt sorry for the fish
    I don't fish by rod and reel, I have done maybe 60 times in my life but apart from when I was a kid I've always kept and either eaten or given to someone to at everything I caught

    Course fishing will be banned soon too and I back that just as strongly as the Fox hunting ban

    What do you think of sports angling. Is that also barbaric and brutal.

    Use barbless hooks

    You might lose a couple of fish but its less cruel

    Thats true, Dan has a point there, there have beed efforts made to cut down on the suffering of the fish.
    Also the fish 99% of the time does actually live.

    Fox Hunting is the same now as it was 100 years ago, they rip the fox apart.

    This is true JP it is not a nice thing, but personally I would rather have a hook thru my lip every few days than being thrown to the dogs to be litterally ripped and nawled to pieces, my limbs torn out their sockets after being broken, my neck being ripped out and then a tug o war with whats left between 20 dogs.

    Which is really worse?

    Also, acording to science stuff, fish don't feel pain (I'm sceptical but thats what they say)
