Originally posted by ~*LIBERTY*~:The thing which puzzles me is that it's a "sport". Aside form the ethics and fox control or whatever...how the hell can anyone enjoy chasing an animal down and watching their dogs rip it to pieces?
Originally posted by Skive'n'Dive:Rabbits are more of a pest than foxes so what are you going on about?
As for foxes killing for the sake of it - thats true! Isn't fox hunting human beings killing a animal for the sake of it?
They do kill chickens but if you take proper precautions your chickens won't have a problem.

the_Paranoid_bunny:MD. you're right.
i agree with you.

for billions of years the world has been inhumane, let it continue, we are animals and the purpose of our lives is to help the human race as a whole to survive and make our quality of life better by living in colonies over the planet and working together. (in my opinion anyway)

This has nothing to do with 'survival of the fittest'. This is about people glorying in the death of another animal.

It doesn't improve our quality of life, if anything it abtually shows us just how callous the human race really is, and how little we care about the world that surrounds us.

the world around us...to survive we manipulate it, take from it's sources and use them to live. perhaps we should not deriviate any energy through burning fossil fuels, use nuclear power or farm using the most efficient methods 'cuz hey - lets not muck up the world we live in.
by the time it comes to a point at which the planet is ruined, we will have moved, as a race, someplace else. by the time the sun is no longer burning, we will have a new life source.
attitudes change, you have a differing one to me. i believe we're here for no other means than carry on the survival of the human race. what we do individually is of little importance, we all die in the end and only the smallest of percentages will remember us. then they die and we shall be forgotten unless we have made some kind of mark in history. we're barbaric animals. less so than those who have gone before us but more so than those to come. killing foxes, is it really that big an issue? there will always be foxes around, if they were an endangered species, Britain is the kind of country that would stop the killing of them.
i look to more important issues - the curing of cancer, one of the fastest spreading diseases of this generation and something that may have the potential to be the end of us unless we can work towards finding a cure.
the third world - the divide between us and them in lifestyles is horrific. people of our kind suffering a worse fate than any fox.
im sorry, but as fox hunting isnt the most widespread of activites in the world and doesnt have a huge impact on the present pressing isssues, it isnt as large a factor for me as it may be for you.

I see no real difference. It's the torture and agonising death of an animal to give some twisted people enertainment.
