Image of the Day – 105

Today’s image is from 1982 and depicts the Tetcott Foxhounds, who hail from North Cornwall and West Devon. Here, a fox has been dug out by the hunt’s terrierman (standing over on the right, with his terrier), and is being held by the tail as it is fed to the hounds.

All this becomes legal again if the hunters get their way and the Hunting Act is repealed. Help us to Keep Cruelty History.

    For God’s sake, one person doing this alone would be a madman, how on earth are there three people standing there and watching that fox being killed? How on earth are there thousands upon thousands of people who think this sort of action is desirable, even pleasurable? Are their brains wired up differently to those of us who abhor this cruelty? I’m ashamed to be part of the same species as them! This picture is 28 years old, I sincerely hope that the three humanoids in it got their just desserts and a taste of either the pain or terror, or both, that the fox was enduring in the intervening years.
