National Trust Trail Hunting: Anti-Hunt Activists Lose Historic Vote

Post by Didge on Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:20 am

Anti-hunt activists have failed in their efforts to ban all hunting on National Trust land. Campaigners argued before the historic vote on Saturday that the move would help to stop illegal hunting, such as fox hunting, by taking away large areas of land for hunts to access. But pro-hunt supporters say that trail hunting is a legal activity and have accused the National Trust of “distancing itself from the rural community to appease metropolitan sensibilities”.

The British "National Trust" are seemingly still largely a spineless and gormless gang of obese girlymen (and their hairy-legged butch wimmin' folk..), with their collective heads firmly planted up the arses of the British Royals, the aristocracy and their "landed (non-)gentry", if the vote to ban fox "hunting" was lost again this year...

Fox Hunting : was defined by Oscar Wilde as  "..the unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable.".

A cowards "sport" --  when those foxes start carrying guns and shooting back,  then it might be considered in any way 'sporting'  !

Those foxes need to do something like this :
