Sir – How pleased I was to see your double page spread regarding hunting.

This proves conclusively that the people of Worcestershire support the hunt now that there is no cruelty involved. They are happy to follow the hunt knowing full well that they will never witness the tearing apart of an exhausted animal, be it fox or deer.

The little men in their pink coats can still ride their big horses and adopt their superior attitudes and no hounds need be destroyed.

Now that riding to hounds without cruelty enjoys so much support, no one need waste any more time on the subject.
