Letter: Anti-hunt.

Byline: Clwyd Griffiths

IT WAS interesting to read that an artificial earth (to encourage fox breeding) was discovered in an area under Flint and Denbigh Hunt.

Do hunt followers really think that we public are so stupid as to believe that being chased and then disembowelled (as forensic evidence show) by 30 pairs of gnashing teeth, is more humane than being shot? It is utterly contemptible.

The Burns report states that hunting with dogs ``seriously compromises the welfare of animals'', proving yet again that the hunting fraternity have absolutely no argument to back up their misplaced course. What about civil rights? Nobody has the right to inflict cruelty on an animal. The law-abiding majority in this country want a total ban on hunting with dogs and end this cruel and ineffective pastime.

Clwyd Griffiths, Denbigh
