7. I think that foxhunting should be allowed but
Edited on Thu Nov-18-04 05:20 PM by CottonBear
perhaps they could modify the hunt to be like those in the US. Here the fox or coyote is tracked but not killed. I am a horse owner and have participated in events with the local hunt in my area. Fox hunting promotes rural land conservation for agriculture and wildlife. Surely they have more important issues to debate. The Iraq war comes to mind.

edit: There is a huge industry associated with fox hunting: horse boarding and breeding farms, farm hands, grooms, vets, farriers, exercise riders, trainers, horse feed suppliers, saddlers and tack makers, equestrian apparel makers, hay farmers etc. I wonder how a ban would impact the rural/equine economy?
