Overheard on the Penzance to London train…

Despite the idea put forward that those of us who oppose hunting are ‘townies’, the truth is that most of our staff, and supporters, live in rural areas.

Indeed, a key member of our Campaigns &  Communications Team lives in Cornwall. And on the train last night, he heard a very well spoken lady discussing with her friend the relative merits of hunting. She said:

“You know, even if I was convinced that hunting was a good thing, the Countryside Alliance would put me off getting involved. Have you heard them? Never mind the Saboteurs, they sound like the problem, to me.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

    Interesting statement about the CA vs the hunt saboteurs.

    The HSA has always admitted that some hunt saboteurs have given them a bad name over time but that most follow the rules and are only there to rescue the hunted animals. I always thought it was highly suspicious that there was so much footage on the internet (uTube etc.) of the hunts being violent and foul to the saboteurs and monitors but none of the sab violence towards the hunts. You would think after all of the pro-hunt claims of kids being pulled from their horses, and horses being injured by sabs, there would be masses of film evidence from the pro-hunt lobby. There is certainly no shortage of hunt films taken by the hunt supporters.
