Ok there are many different types of hunting. I used to hunt alot. I used to get calls from farmers who would ask me to control the population of certain species to protect another species or to save their crops! I did this for many years without any problems until one day I had to shoot a family of birds.. I'll not go in to detail but I the birds became very distressed and knew what was happening... this was my last hunt. Soon after I sold my weapons. However - I do still think this kind of hunting needs to be carried out for the protection of other species and crops. We have invaded the wildlife with our roads and building forcing them in to an unatural habitat.. so sometimes I think it is necessarry to cull certain species!! As for fox hunting - I'm so glad it has been ban.. I would love to take one of those posh twits in their red jacket and jodpers and drop them in the roughest part of Sheffield and let them run for their lives as they are being chased by an angry mob.. see how they like it!! What's other peoples views on Hunting???
