SIR - After MP Mike Foster spent 720 hours of government time bringing in the hunting ban how can he possibly sit quiet and let schoolchildren in his town eat meat which is slaughtered in the most barbaric way possible?

Surely having your throat slit and being left to bleed to death for up to 45 minutes cannot be a humane way of dying? Also, if the so-called hunt monitors are the animal lovers they say they are, then on a Saturday afternoon they would be trying to stop this slaughter instead of disrupting fox hunts which are acting within the law.

My children will not be having meat for school dinners anymore until this barbaric slaughter is stopped. My family and I all hunt and I believe that the only people who care for animals are the people who know the truth.
