SIR – James Barrington (Worcester News, June 8) and Jon Burgess (Worcester News, June 8) continue to quote facts and figures on hunting.

They seem to be missing the main reason why most civilised people are against hunting is that it is done not for the control of foxes but as a sport.

Killing fellow creatures for sport turns compassionate people’s stomachs, not to mention that huntsmen trespass over land owned by people who don’t want them on their land.

When asked to leave we are bombarded with foul language.

As for anti-hunt people denying that predators hunt predators – that is rubbish.

This is what keeps the wild creatures under control naturally.
