SIR – Please stop publishing the letters from Jon Burgess every week. His views are from the Middle Ages.

To suggest hare coursing is to test greyhounds (Worcester News, March 25) is ridiculous. They are bred to race round a track. Hare coursing, like fox, deer and other blood sports is to appeal to blood lust, nothing else.

I wonder if he would support bringing back bull baiting, dog fighting, cock fighting and many other mediaeval so-called sports.
