  'Foxes should be entitled to live'
Updated 15 February 2002, 09.17
Fox hunting with dogs
LB thinks that fox hunting is just senseless killing.

"I live in the country and think that fox hunting and all other blood sports are meaningless.

I was lucky enough to have a family of foxes living in my garden a couple of years ago.

Disappeared one by one

One day we looked out the window and saw two adult foxes and four cubs! Over the months we watched the foxes and got to know their personalities.

But one by one they started to disappear. The cubs were too young to leave and so had obviously been killed in some way.

The next year just one fox was living in our garden. We liked to think that it was one of the cubs from the previous year.

School project

That year I did a project on foxes for school and found out that hunters train dogs to kill by getting them as puppies into an area with fox cubs. They then reward them for killing the cubs which I think is sick.

I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but does that mean that foxes and other animals that are killed for 'sport' aren't entitled to their lives?"
