IT IS true that foxhunts block up all holes in which a fox may seek refuge.

This practice is called "stopping up", and the hunts use "earthstoppers" for this purpose.

Tory leader David Cameron has just said that a repeal of the hunting ban will be a priority if he is elected.

Incredibly, his reason is that the law is "unfair", and is being widely "flouted".

Support by a senior politician for lawbreaking is disgraceful, and it is important that people remember, when considering how to vote, that the Tories will legalise hunting.
