“After 13 years of discussing and debating this issue I found it impossible to ignore the truth and facts about hunting. I have come to despise the League Against Cruel Sports, even though I was its Chairman and Chief Executive, simply because these people know as well as I do that the abolition of hunting will not make any difference to the welfare of foxes, hares or deer.”Richard Course
Former Chairman and Executive Director of the League Against Cruel Sports for thirteen years. Commenting in April 1998.
I’m having a long discussion, some may say arguement on a forum I post on regarding what remains of fox hunting in the UK. My disagreer believes that even the sport as it remains is cruel and evil and should be banned. I wondered what their motivation was and when told it was the animal cruelty aspect I unfortunately asked if they felt as strongly that cars should be banned, and was promptly ridiculed. However, did you know…
It is estimated that during the average year
- one hundred thousand Foxes
- fifty thousand Deer
- fifty thousand Badgers
- fifteen thousand Hedgehogs
are killed on the roads of the UK.
