In the latest hatchet job attempt at denigrating the Hunting Act, the Countryside Alliance have trotted out Jim Barrington, their ‘animal welfare advisor’ in an article on the Politics.co.uk website (in case you’ve never met him, here’s a photo from our archive).
The Countryside Alliance just don’t get it. Only the bloodthirsty hunters want to see a return to hunting, and they’re pulling the wool over no-one’s eyes by claiming that hunting is more humane than other forms of ‘pest control’. It’s interesting in this article that they claim hunts take the weak and the ill; presumably not the ones that kill chickens and lambs. Or do they? Errr… some confusion somewhere.
We absolutely must Keep Cruelty History.
PS: Anyone else think that the Countryside Alliance having an “animal welfare consultant” is akin to the Saudi government having a human rights consultant?
