I WRITE regarding a quote from Melissa Kite: "For the umpteenth time, the fox is ripped apart after it is dead, OK?"

This comment really insults the intelligence of the public. This is what they want people to believe but she forgets anti-hunt protestors witness kills also and the fox is ripped apart alive.

And Moorhouse's theory foxes who meet this end are the lucky ones is incomprehensible.

Hounds are not natural predators to the fox, they are trained to kill. Nature is cruel to both man and beast, why should we make it more cruel?

If I were a fox, I would rather take my chances with nature than be chased for hours and hunted.

As to people being rabbits, maybe Jeavons would like to be a fox!
