RE: ‘It’s deserved’, Journal Letters last week.

Dear countryman George, if the fox is such a rapacious, merciless killer, why does the hunt ensure a continuous supply of foxes in the countryside?

After all they have been foxhunting for 100 years or more!

No foxes, no hunting!

It is enough to make a hen keeper’s blood boil !
