N HILLEN’S outlook on fox hunting has more holes in it than a colander. For example, how would N Hillen deal with a cuckoo that laid its egg in a robin’s nest only for mum robin to see her own young thrown out of the nest to die?

Or with a sheep that has had twin lambs only to see them carried off and killed by a thieving, verminous fox?

And as far as family members go, many families are being chased and ripped apart by human beings in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine. So if that doesn’t knock the smugness off your face, N Hillen, it should do.
