Good turnout for Herefordshire's Boxing Day hunts

Ledbury Reporter: Plenty turned out in Ledbury to watch the Boxing Day hunt Plenty turned out in Ledbury to watch the Boxing Day hunt

DESPITE a difficult few weeks for hunt enthusiasts, thousands turned out across Herefordshire to support the traditional Boxing Day meetings.

From Bromyard to Bosbury, Leominster to Ledbury, followers attended on what is one of the busiest meetings of the year.

The impressive numbers come just weeks after two members of Prime Minister
David Cameron’s local hunt – Heythrop in Oxfordshire - were fined for the illegal hunting of foxes with dogs.

But Graham Baker, chairman of the South Herefordshire Hunt, said the negative publicity had not stopped supporters turning out at Christmas.

This year his hunt again made an appearance in Hereford city centre. Hounds and horses gathered just yards from the Cathedral in Castle Street.

Excellent!
What a treat to see this great British tradition is thriving despite minority group whingeing and irritant attempts to spoil the enjoyment of others.

Well said Dodo.

If our political masters have any wit at all they will overturn the blairs "spite" driven legislation before the current parliament is over.

If either of you read any news you would know that 1)over 70% of public support the ban on hunting with dogs and 2)the tory party have admitted themselves that they do not have enough majority in the house of commons to overturn the ban. Looks like the ban is staying, and times change and traditions change. Stop living in the past people wont tolerate the blatant cruelty and arrogance of the hunts any longer

In order to keep the tradition alive, I suggest the fastest runner among the hunt enthusiasts should take the place of the fox and attempt to outrun the hounds. Any takers?

well, belerina and clockwatcher, if you are right about blairs ban staying in place for the time being, at least we still have the entertainment of two events in one, the traditional hunt takes place as ever and we also have the pantomime of the hunt disruptors who make complete fools of themselves whereever they go.

keep up the good work.

Sadly the ban means nothing to these people, with them continuing to chase and kill not only the fox population but now even local cats. Ross Harriers, have been in court twice in the last two months. firstly for assault on hunt monitors and now racism. Hunting attracts a sad group of individuals who use it an outlet for the anger issues they have. Many of the main players at Ross Harriers have problems closer to home that need dealing with, and instead of sorting these problems out, lash out at innocent people and animals.

Michael Foster did a great service to country life and country pursuits with his Bill. I saw at least 100 horses go past locally and thousands watching in the rain. The support was not there like this in the past, Mr Foster revived it and lost his seat. I think it is called the Law of Unintended Consequences.

Probona good comment but lets not forget the farmers having to listen to ewes calling for there lambs that are taken in the night, oh and lets thank the charities that catch the urban foxes and release them into the countryside, or is that just an urban myth..... Maybe for sport I should buy a cat and watch it slowly kill the song birds in my garden??

We all know this ugly disgusting so called BANNED'sport' still goes on despite it being now ILLEGAL!!!
If people still think its right to allow at least 20 dogs to rip a fox to pieces(this is normally after digging it out from underground) then these people are just as 'SICK' as people that kill other people.

EVERY ANIMAL HAS A RIGHT TO LIVE

And also, kindly desist from labeling hunt supporters as being unwell.

Judging by the ranting style of your submission it is you who are in need of medication, not hunt supporters.

The fox does not kill for sport. He kills numerous times, yes, but if you were to watch he will return and collect all of his kill in order to 'stash'. It's nature. Hunting by humans on horse back, with inflated egos, for no benefit other than pure 'fun', is not.

Of course hunt "supporters" should be allowed to rant and rave about how unfair it all is. I'm sure many of us have to abide by laws we don't like. But anyone participating in illegal activity should expect to be caught and face the full force of the law. Hunting foxes with dogs is criminal activity and the people doing it are criminals. They may also be prefectly decent respectible members of the community, but the law exists, and until it's repealed, if they break the law they should expect to be punished.
Name calling is not necessary - we have the law on our side now.

So would all these people who like to see one canid rip apart another be in favour of bringing back dog fighting, that was a grand tradition, or perhaps bear baiting?
If it was a load of people in tracksuits with pit bulls you can guarantee that they would have been arrested and put in prison.
It does amuse me all the excuses they come up with to justify the torture of an animal for fun. I have seen many a fox walk through a field of sheep and lambs none of which bat an eyelid, not really suggestive of being prey is it.
And its the hunts who behave like terrorists, the only reason sabs dress to hide their identity is because the hunt and their supports would subject them to a campaign of hatred and abuse it has been well documented in the past how various hunts have tormented home-owners who refused them access to their land. And its also well documented how the hunts randomly attack people who are monitoring them, if you're not breaking the law why attack them. Guilty conscience

Good grief! I agree with our William.
That said, if by some strange twist of fate it was the 'rat' being chased by the howling horse backed mob and their pack of canines, I ain't so sure where I'd stand on this issue.
I mean, let's be honest, the 'rat' has few redeeming characteristics. Ive never met a rat that I liked. Dirty little things if my view is worth a jot.
Few people associate the 'rat' with good tidings and happy events. Moreoften than not, the 'rat' is depicted as an awful creepy little pest that does little to enhance our lives.
Im not singling out the 'rat'! Other members of the animal kingdom fall into this category. The fly. Even the worm provide me with nothing at all.
What Im saying in my roundabout way is, if we have to chase something, lets chase the rat or the Bluebottle fly. Im sure that we'd all feel better about that.

bobby47 says...

Swampy, No, Im in agreement with you. What Im saying is if a man or a woman want to chase a member of the animal kingdom, whether it walks, crawls, fly's or swims then they can. But, they can't have a horse, they can't dress up in a little red costume and they cannot be accompanied by a canine of any other species of creature.
I think that's a reasonable compromise.
They could chase their chosen quarry all around High Town all day long with little chance of ever catching their chosen creature. That safeguards two things, our civil liberties to chase something if we choose to do so and it protects the rat or whatever one has chosen to pursue.
It could catch on. Groups and Associations could be born from this approach. High Town could become full again with not only shoppers but those who choose to chase a creature.
My warmest regards.

Thanks bobby, anything to get Hereford vibrant again would be a blessing, its so sad when you walk through the city and see so many empty shops and more closing in the near future. I had a shop in Hereford many years ago and found it
impossible to carry on, and on top of that the council get Amey workers to go around checking the bins to make sure no business has put any 'trade waste' in them. So sad.,

Country people know the need to control vermin, be it Mouse,Rat,Pigeon,Mol e,Rabbit,Fox,Crows, It happens,has always happened and will continue to happen,when will the interfering unknowledgeable town people decide that all this is unacceptable.

well said Slim William.

as for silent bull, who is shocked at having to overlook a hunt meet from his house, he should clearly re-locate to a town area, maybe where he could overlook a Tesco or Asda car park.

certainly better for his mental health.

Dodo, look at the comments overall - there are many more issues than "class hatred" being discussed here.
To my mind, the morality and the efficiency/effective
ness of hunting foxes with hounds are the most relevant issues - these points have been raised throughout this article.
At best this discussion will be heated, fuelled by the strength of feelings on both sides. At worst it will degenerate into pointless name-calling and rhetoric.
I mean to say, the People we entrust running our country cannot seem to achieve and end to the debate. What chance do we stand? ;-)

For what they are worth my thoughts on the matter are these.

Firstly, let me say I speak as someone who has spent his fifty-something years living in the Herefordshire countryside. Let that negate one of the regularly aired comments of the Pro lobby - "People in towns don't understand the ways of the countryside".
Also, we get the "people in the countryside" generalisation, used to encompass the Pro lobby. That one is utter rubbish in my experience. Of the people I know, 99 per cent are against hunting with hounds.

It is not a town versus countryside argument.

As I said previously, morality and the efficiency are for me the two main factors in this argument. I personally, believe that it is morally unacceptable to hunt an animal to its death for sport. If you are reading this and are in the opposite camp to me, question yourself: Do you?

I have no issue with killing an animal for food or if it needs to be culled as vermin.

This leads on to the issue of efficiency.
If, as the Pro lobby maintain, foxes in the countryside need to be controlled, the most humane and efficient way to do it are a man with a gun or a man with two good dogs.
There - I have made a sweeping statement. Not something I would normally do but I would be interested if anyone can refute it with reasoned argument, based on my qualification of humaneness and efficiency.

I feel I must reply to the comments here about "foxes killing for pleasure", as if by demonizing them so, it justifies us to do exactly the same. Apart from being an argument of flawed logic, it is also based on a fallacy - true, a fox will slaughter a whole pen of chickens (if the chicken owner is stupid enough not to protect them adequately) - not through a frenzy of blood-**** but because he (wait for the shock) needs to eat to survive. He will take the surplus kill and store it for the future. Surprisingly, he does not realise that the food supply generously offered by it's careless human owner will still be there for days to come, allowing him the luxury of being able to return night after night to select his supper one at a time!


I cannot see that when you strip away all the distractions there is anything more to the hunting with hounds debate other than tradition and enjoyment. If the Pro lobby were to campaign on these grounds then so be it.

Not in my view, Mr.McVicar, it is simply the peasants trying to dictate to the aristocrats what they may and may not do.

The rest is all emotive baggage arising from the peasants.

When their hero blair had the power, they thought they had got what they wanted, spiteful class ridden legislation.

Sad to say they were mistaken, laws founded in emotion, based upon one group trying to impose their views on another, seldom work.

wyesider says...

I've no particular feelings for or against fox hunting. Indeed, I took my grandchildren to watch the hunt assemble as they love dogs and badgered me into taking them. The idea that dodoleduck seems to think it's an aristocratic pusuit is rather an ancient idea. Some ordinary farmworkers were amongst the riders on horseback. And there are, some 'aristocrats' will not even allow the hunt anywhere near their land and think hunting is cruel and abhorrent. According to reports in the newspapers a 'free' vote in parliament would not result in a repeal of the act banning hunting foxes with dogs.
It's good to see a debate like this one on this website. If there was a referendum on this subject, it might be that the general public would keep the ban?

swampy says...

I completely agree, hunting is not a class issue, as Wyesider states all people go hunting, and the digging out at the end is almost always done by farm workers.
Why should those of us who also live and work in the countryside have to move because we object to the cruelty that hunting brings, especially as hunting with dogs has been banned and yet is still taking place. The problem is the Police don't have the resources to enforce the ban as it should be, thank goodness the RSPCA has started to move in that direction at long last. For too long the local hunts have rode roughshod over anyone that does'nt agree with what they do.

Google dodoleduck (without the space) to find out why. The first hit should be a This is Gloucestershire profile, which shows quite clearly that they are one and the same.

Now I wonder who that could be? Let's think about it: an extreme right-wing, wannabe class warrior, who was very vocally in favour of Sainsbury's in Ledbury (about which they 'both' sound off elsewhere recently). Maybe someone who has previous form when it comes to creating fictitious identities and stirring up petty arguments online? Oooh, this is a tough one isn't it?
