Monmouthshire Hunt Meet

Over 1000 people turned up in Abergavenny this morning to support the Monmouthshire Hunt Boxing Day Meet (one day late becuase it was Sunday yesterday.) This was the biggest crowd by far which I have ever seen and there is no doubt that was partly due to the anger felt in rural areas at the hypocrisy of those who voted to ban hunting in the face of government evidence which states that a ban on hunting could be bad for the welfare of the fox - because it will face extermination by less pleasant means such as gassing or snaring. Meanwhile other practices which have raised far greater animal welfare concerns from the government's own advisors are allowed to continue.
