    farmer in scotland gets around scottish fox hunting laws

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4083361.stm

    he done it as 'pest control' as under scottish law you can get away with it as long as the dogs dont kill the fox, and the fox is shot, so someone thought he was hunting and got him arrested and cleared

    so in scotland if you flush out the foxes with 2 hounds, you can shoot them

    strangely 30% more foxes have been killed since scotland implemented the ban, and i thought hunting with hounds only was the best way, and what about the job losses

    it inst about that, its that usinbg hounds to hunt is the cruelist way, so strangely using dogs to flush them out and then shooting them works better

    and all the pro hunt people in scotland were like "oh fox numbers will increase loads" wen theyre obviously wrong

    at the end of the day ...foxes are still being hunted and killed ...so what was the point of all this again? because the city people wanted it to be cleaner or something ...

    a cleaner kil yes, hurting a fox and chasing it todeath is the cruelty

    it was more of a social event than a pest control method, so it was cruel and uneffective

    Yes, now we must use poisons and snares - both lovely deaths.
    Doves, Playboys, Biscuits, Barrels, Callies, Clear Caps, China Whites, Rhubarbs, Loony Toons, New Yorkers... you know, bang on, larging it, the full monty, safe as houses, pair of trousers, what a laugh, let's do another half!

    How many foxes were saved for how many dogs being put down?

    no foxes were saved. they have not become a protected speicies. we can still hunt and kill and skin them ...if you shoot at one and only take half it's head away ...it will of course be grateful for the ban on hunting with dogs.

    People who are so readily prepared to put healthy dogs down when they no longer have a use for them are clearly heartless cruel bastards who should not be allowed to own animals.
    Sick to death of the fekking wedding already.

    wrong mate. these are working dogs not pets.
    they have never lived in a house with people and it would be impossible to get them to. they are not house trained and cuddly.

    Isn't it then extremely cynical, pointless and barbaric to mass-breed dogs with the sole purporse of using them for the huntsmen's amusement and entertainment, only to kill them when they reach 5-6 years of age because they cannot run as fast as before?

    And incidentally, this makes all comparisons with the RSPCA pointless Kermit. I'm not aware of the RSPCA breeding dogs on purpose for fun purposes only to put them down a bit later.
