This is some very good news. Not only are Fox' safer now but so are peoples cats and other pets who have been savaged in the past by hounds on a Fox hunt. The hunters keep talking about keeping the Fox population under control. But that excuse doesn't carry much weight anymore and I'm gald the Fox hunting ban in England has been passed.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

So is hunting of all other animals forbidden too now? Or is this just a way of the "little people" getting back to the "snobs"? Because I can't tell the difference between killing an animal for fun (fox hunting) and killing an animal for fun (say fishing)?

This is excellent news. I spent 6 years living in the Cheshire countryside and a hunt went past our house every other weekend and it was horrible. I saw them chasing a fox in the field behind our house one day... The poor thing was still a baby and it was running for its life. There's no need for it. I can appreciate that they can be a total nuisance... a fox killed all my rabbits one night but there are more humane ways to keep their populations down than having them scared shitless by hounds... chased until they are so exhausted they can't move and then having them ripped to shreds.

Its good news, though soured by the fact that enforcement is 18 months away...

I think its wrong for people to make a grand social event, and gain immense pleasure from the 'sport' of killing an animal...there are plenty of other things I dislike about it, but that is front and centre...

As to fishing...when I was a kid I was taken fishing once or twice...which I regret...but in most of the fishing that goes on the fish are put back in the river, albeit after various amounts of pain and suffering...

Needless to say I would like to see fishing banned too, but recognise there is no majority in the people or in parliament for that.

Fox Hunting on the other hand, has a massive majoirty in parliament and a majority in the country wanting it banned, meaning todays step is long overdue.

Britian has always styled itself as an animal loving nation...but Fox Hunting and the like have been a blot on our record, made us hypocrites...hopefully, once we are free of it, we can go on and speak on a European stage about animal cruelty with more authority, and seek to get practices like Bull-fighting banned too.

Wow, this is fantastic news! I went horse-riding for 7 years and I was always so disgusted by the fact so many people wanted to go hunting and were so surprised when I objected to it so much. Makes you wonder what sort of people there are in the world that get a thrill out of it............

Jen, is it cold out there or are you just pleased to see me?
