SIR – So Tim Shenton thinks fox hunting is part of rural social interaction.

I have recently left my smallholding of 34 years, partly due to his type of social interaction – the hunt kept crossing my land disturbing my horses and the wildlife. I was also given verbal abuse when the hunters were asked to leave.

I never found the need to murder creatures of the countryside in order to have a social life. Ever thought of riding horses and just observing the wildlife? But I suppose that wouldn’t satisfy your blood lust.
