fox hunter hunting

armies of animal rights activists chase royalty through the countryside for several hours

you would have hunt protesters and animal right activists shooting and setting dogs onto royalty who have to wear red coats and run 50 to the dozen through the countryside.

how's that for pest control?

       I know that various groups try to foil foxhunts through various methods with varying degrees of success. The problem with this idea is that foxhunters might not have the activists qualms against using horses to ride away or simply shooting anyone who threatened them.   

       Besides, don't animal activists have bigger fish to fr... er, hug, than foxhunters?

       Currently baked. UK Hunt Saboteurs aleady use violent and non-violent methods to harrass, obstruct and chase hunts.
Aristotle, Apr 03 2001
  

       And what have the Hunts done to deserve this ignominy?

       UnaBubba: In theory, yes but it's a contraversial theory. I hold the view that continued Fox Hunting has preserved the fox in the British Countryside during times when other predators were exterminated or became extinct. However in the process "the welfare of the individual fox can be seriously compromised".   

       However this is a big can of worms and I will not risk opening it any further.

       UnaBubba:   

       Only as it relates to th' economy.   

       Is that the response you were seeking?

       well... im happy with the response

       The foxhunters aren't going to appreciate paintballs to the face. I hear those little [illegitimate offspring] really hurt.

       aristotle: now what about worm hunting?
technobadger, Apr 03 2001
  

       I don't know about worm hunting but worm charming is baked. Each competitor gets a random plot in the competition field and they have to get as many worms of the ground (without digging) as they can.
Aristotle, Apr 03 2001
  

       Soapy water will lure worms to the surface. Don't know why though.

       Rationale for fox hunt hunting: the hunters are "The unspeakable in hot pursuit of the uneatable." -- Wilde. Why not irritate pasty-faced, toffy-nosed upper class twits on horseback? It has to be better than annoying the fox.
Noisybob, Dec 30 2002
  

       Amen to that.
