Call for hunting ban repeal angers public
Call for hunting ban repeal angers public. Link: http://www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk/hunting-ban-repeal-angers-public/story-17710771-detail/story.html READERS have reacted angrily to claims from pro-hunting groups that people want to see Parliament repeal the hunting ban. Following the traditional Boxing Day Brocklesby Hunt, Lord Charles Yarborough said he believed people wanted the "sport" to return, adding many were concerned about an apparent rise in fox numbers since the ban came into force in 2005. However, his comments sparked a great deal of debate on www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk – with the majority condemning his views as outdated.
