I couldn’t believe it when I read the news this morning. Jeremy Hunt is prepared to bring back fox hunting. Actually, I can believe it. Jeremy Hunt is a Tory. Not just any Tory. A huge megatron Tory.

Apparently, fox hunting is fine, as it is part of our heritage – according to Jezza.

It has been scientifically proven that foxes show emotions, are intelligent-beings, capable of experiencing fear and pain.

With all this in mind, imagine how a fox would feel, being chased through the countryside (it’s home), by a pack of savage dogs.

Once the fox has been drained of all energy, it will be mauled to death by the hounds. Before the fox’s inevitable demise, the poor creature’s fur and skin will be torn from its body.

With the fox still very much alive, but suffering tremendous pain and terror; the dogs will move onto violently removing the flesh and organs.

Should the fox has still not have perished, it will die within minutes – if not from substantial blood loss, but from catastrophic damage to vital organs.

Anyone with an ounce of humanity will find the barbaric nature of hunting deplorable and totally unjustifiable.

What brings someone to think hunting is a good, fair pastime to be a part of? Studies into serial murderers have revealed that many began killing and torturing animals, years before progressing onto the slaying of people.

Does this mean that those in favour of hunting appear blind to the risk of attracting the next Ian Huntley? A person who finds killing an animal fun, must have some dangerous and unstable morals.

I wonder what the same pro-hunters views would be, if a bunch of teenage yobs, from a council estate were to savagely chase and kill an urban fox, with help from Dwayne’s pet pitbull, while all riding scooters.

I think we all know the answer. How is killing a fox with horses and hounds, different to killing a fox with small motorbikes and a dangerous dog? One group is upper class, the other working class. The contrasts end there. Both parties take part in and enjoy savagely killing a wild animal.

Just to remind you all, based on today’s news, Mr Hunt seems in favour of the barbaric act, because it is part of our heritage.

Here is a list of other horrific things, once part of our “heritage”, but rightly banned and thankfully confined to the history books. Will Mr Hunt be bringing any of these back too?

  • Bear baiting
  • Cock fighting
  • Dog fights
  • Capital punishment
  • Slavery
  • The Jeremy Kyle Show

I threw that last one in for a bit of light-hearted relief. Many of the other examples though, are equally as cruel as fox hunting, so why consider bringing back one blood sport and not another?

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
