The Fox Tour begins!

From now until polling day, the League’s Fox Tour will be visiting constituencies up and down the country to talk to candidates and the public about repeal of the Hunting Act. Right now, our team are in Corby in Northamptonshire, for the first outing of the fox, promoting our Keep Cruelty History campaign.

Each day we’ll visit a different constituency where hunting appears to be a significant issue. Corby lies close to a number of hunts, including the Pytchley and the Woodland Pytchley, and yet we know that the public here don’t want to see a return to legal fox hunting, stag hunting, hare coursing and hare hunting.

Over the course of this afternoon, we’ll be trying to track down the Prospective Parliamentary Candidates for Corby, to find out their views on hunting. We’ll also be talking to people around the constituency to find out their views too. And all this will be published in a video blog which will be online tomorrow morning.

Today Corby, tomorrow … it’s a secret! Check out the blog at midday tomorrow to find out.

PS: While we were doing these publicity shots yesterday morning, a Land Rover with Countryside Alliance stickers in the back window shouted obscenities at us. We must be doing something right!

    Although I can understand your thoughts I just wish that your time was spent on a far more important issue such as Child Care, Hospitals, Soldiers being Killed instead of worrying about a few smelly Foxes

      nebhunting, I think you will find that people who show compassion towards animals also have room in their hearts and minds to care deeply about the issues you mention, being concerned for the welfare of animals and wanting to protect them from those who’s desire is to destroy them doesn’t stop us wanting better health care, child care or safety for our armed forces. The point is that this site is about wanting to protect animals, if you look elsewhere on the web you will find sites equally dedicated to healthcare, children and our boys who are fighting and you will probably see some of the same contributors names cropping up as you do on this site.

    Yes but if the same names appear on a lot of sites it will give one the immpression that these people just like to moan about everything, moderation is the name of the game.

    Well I can’t see that there is any alternative but to moan about cruelty to animals, if the cruelty stops I for one would be only too glad to stop worrying about it. Moderation isn’t the name fof the game when it comes to campaigning for animals, go for it with all guns blazing comes nearer the mark.

    I guess it’s a good job it’ still a free country, erm no perhaps it is no longer a free country as we have far too many rules and regulations, as for your last bit does that mean you are into pheasant and grouse shooting, ah the glorious twelth, unfortunately I am unable to afford the luxury of the Grouse Moors though but I do love the taste of fresh Grouse, you lucky thing

    Ha ha very funny, no I’m certainly not into shooting any type of beautiful animal or bird, nor into eating them either. You should try a vegetarian diet it might help lift your negative frame of mind a bit, having decaying flesh working it’s way through your intestines can’t be good for you.

    You do realise if it were not for meat eaters you would never see sheep or lambs and if everyone became a vegan one would never see any livestock in the countryside as farmers would have field after field of oats, wheat etc but not an animal to be seen, now I think that would be terrible but farmers will farm what people eat and if no one ate meat the rural landscape would change, and of course more Deer would be shot to stop them eating the crops, so do you still want me to stop eating meat?

    It’s nothing to me if you eat meat or not, it’s your own body and conscience that should dictate that, there is always going to be meat eaters so don’t worry,the sheep will still be there for you to see and the lambs will still enjoy a brief life before being killed to feed carnivores and there will be no added excuse to shoot deer. Putting myself in the place of animals raised for meat though I must say that I think I’d rather not be born than have a brief life that ends in the slaughterhouse.

    Well it did seem like you cared from your earlier comment and I am pleased to see that you think that there will always be meat eating people around and of course the mistake you are making is in your thoughts as animals do things natually but don’t benefit from logic whilst humans do, they are unaware of their purpose on earth and do not understand death
