Totally Off Topic -Actor Martin Clunes Loves Fox Hunting


Not wishing to get too "heavy" but it seems Martin Clunes, actor, "animal lover" who hates "all cruelty to animals" actually loves supporting and cheering on fox hunts (though he claims never to have hunted himself).  Hunts that use dogs to tear other dogs (foxes) to shreds and these days mainly "bagged" and "kept foxes".

If only people would boycott his TV programmes and disrupt his filming.

"The sound of the countryside" -really, Martin?  Because even in the "good old days" only a small minority supported the blood sport and many protested it and even took hunts to court for damage and killing pets and livestock.  An arschloch middle class "townie".

Maybe he ought to read this before opening his fat, ignorant  mouth.  His programmes are boycotted in my home at least.

The Red Paper: Canids Up-dated 2011 edition includes section on sarcoptic mange in foxes and treatment plus a list of wildlife sanctuaries and rescue centres in the UK.

By the 1700s the British fox was on the verge of extinction and about to follow the bear and wolf having been hunted for sport for centuries. The answer was to import thousands of foxes per year for sport. But foxes kept dying out so jackals were tried. Some were caught, some escaped.

Even wolves and coyote were released for hunting. The summation of over 30 years research reveals the damnable lie of "pest control" hunting but also reveals the cruelty the animals were subject to and how private menageries as well as travelling shows helped provide the British and Irish countryside with some incredible events.
