repeal the hunting ban

Comment 2nd July 2010

Since the ban on fox hunting we have suffered massive losses of lambs due to foxes on our hill farm in cumbria, these animals can sometimes kill up to 30 lambs or more in a lambing season which constitues a significant loss to our already streched income, before the ban foxes that  where old or injured where killed by the hounds leaving only the fit and heathly which can survive with out killing livestock, it was and still is the most effective way to control the fox population in our fells, and should be allowed to restart.

Why does this matter?

The hunting ban should be repealed to allow measured controls of the fox population in our upland hill farms, a lot of these places can only be reached by hounds and only hounds can do this job effectively and selectively.
