Fox Hunting: Good or Bad

Extracts from this document...


Fox Hunting: Good or Bad The current ban on fox hunting has been very controversial, and there have been many arguments, both for and against hunting. Fox hunting is typically viewed as a traditional British activity, but actual fox hunting that uses hounds takes place all over the world. Historically wherever the British have gone building their empires, they have taken the sport of fox hunting43 with them. In addition, plenty of other countries have their own fox hunting traditions. In France, Italy and Ireland they are thriving fox hunts. In many parts of France: foxes, hares, wild boars, and mink are all hunted. People who support fox hunting believe that it is a sport and a way of preventing foxes from overrunning the countryside. ...read more.


However there are people who believe fox hunting is an evil cruel barbaric pastime, which farmers those who take part in it call a sport. The people who think fox hunting is evil believe that is cruel to kill a poor innocent creature that is only trying to find food to feed its family. Foxes are lovely, calm, quiet creatures that always run as soon as they see humans, so this must show that they are definitely more frightened of us than we are of them. During a hunt the poor foxes are chased out of their homes even when they are only cubs and sometimes their parents and family are killed. This must be a horrible experience for them. ...read more.


In conclusion there are still many arguments for and against fox hunting and the current ban on fox hunting has done little to solve the arguments. I do not think the arguments for and against fox hunting will disappear because it is a very controversial issue which many people feel strongly about and are prepared to continue to argue. Those people who work and take part in fox hunting see it as a way of life and think that they have a right to carry it on because it is an old English tradition which is practiced in all parts of Europe. People who are against fox hunting will always see it as a cruel way to treat animals. I myself would like to see it banned. ?? ?? ?? ?? Marcus Gladden English 100-84 October 14, 2005 ...read more.
