Animal lovers across Herefordshire were appalled this week to see, both, the Hereford Times and Hereford Journal promoting violence against animals.

Both newspapers callously showed members of the notoriously violent Ledbury fox hunt parading through the town. The Times even wrote glowingly on the possible lifting of the hunting ban.

Strange that these two papers which are always quick to condemn anti-social behaviour can so blatantly promote a violent sadistic and illegal practice such as fox hunting.

Thank goodness for the Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA). These brave people regularly come up against police intimidation and violent hunt supporters in order to stop this blood sport.
