I WONDER what the anti-hunt protesters are feeling after the dreadful attack by one of their poor foxes on the two babies in the London area?

Since hunting was banned foxes have increased prolifically, and indeed in recent months I have passed two or three foxes crossing the road in front of my car.

People should stop getting starry-eyed over them, as they kill for fun and they are classified as vermin.

People should also stop feeding them, especially in urban areas. In Surrey, where I have relatives, foxes are often seen sitting in the roads at night, and I am reliably informed that people feed them.

A friend of mine some time ago went to feed 12 ducks on her pond and found every one headless on the ground. Others have had chickens killed – but not eaten. Need I elaborate further?
