It was horrific!

FOX hunting is no better than rioting youths.
I was disturbed the other morning by the sound of multiple hooves coming down my lane. When I opened my front door, I was horrified to find hounds swarming over my property.
When I asked the riders to remove the hounds, the only reply I got was a sarcastic ‘Morning’. So I called 101. During the call the riders were blocking the entire road, presumably deciding where to go next while the dogs ran every which way.
Another came across my property and my request was again ignored.
If a bunch of youths blocked the lane on quadbikes with a pack of pit bulls there would be public outcry. Why is the hunt tolerated when their practices are against the law. They are no better than rioting youths.
I did notice two children in their midst, what lovely people they will grow up to be, thinking that they are above the law and witnessing animal mutilation.
One of these children told me to ‘shut up’! when I told them for a third time that they were not welcome on my property, proving my point quite well. Someone should issue them red hoodies!
