Stag hunt ban needs careful monitoring

Now October is upon us we are reminded that the killing season is here.

In the UK, all the hunters have lost is the sordid pleasure gained from killing a living creature. Now, there is no need to breed foxes to be hunted.

The excuse of pest control was destroyed by the leaking of a plea by the UK Master of Foxhounds Association to breed more foxes to cope with the then current fox shortage.

The stag-hunt ban needs to be actively monitored, as bans are useless unless they are enforced.

I call for any information of illegal hunting, shooting or other animal violations to be sent to the authorities to help them protect the other sentient beings that hunters use for fun and sport.
