Advantages Controls fox population, a 'sport' for many
This was originally written as a speech for my english gsce coursework. My side of the argument was decided for me, pro hunting, but given the choice i would not specifically write for either side.
Only 36% of the public actually support the ban on hunting. Aren't the views of a nation more important than 500 MP's? If hunting was actually harmful or cruel this ban would have been placed years ago, without the need for the law to be pushed through using the Parliament act?
In November 2004 there were 318 registered hound packs in England and Wales. Around 13000 jobs depend on the hunt. What will happen to them?
The fact that hunting is now against the law means it has to be policed. They already had too much work. You could end up with a law that has been passed, that nobody adheres to and is ineffective - how do you confiscate a pack of hounds and 40 horses? It is a common fact the today's police force don't have enough recruits or resources. This ban will only make matters worse.
As one of the main anti-hunting groups in the UK, the League Against Cruel Sports is presumed to put animal welfare at the centre of it's argument against the activity. However, five people have left the organisation - two of which are chief executives in protest at its appalling behaviour.
I strongly believe that the people in this country, whoever they are, should be free to pursue their traditional ways of life. I cannot see any justice in destroying the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working, law-abiding people by legislation.
