Ratting with terriers

Recommended Posts

Think its a shame that Fox Hunting is still allowed and people do it.

The Fox is a beautiful looking creature and is entitled to a life same as we humans.

Those that go in for Fox Hunting, ought to be in a role reversal situation whereas they become the hunted and are chased by a pack of angry foxes !

 

Rats are the only vermin that I have no sympathy for when it comes to killing them.......

having said that, I've never killed one myself but seen one or two being killed.

 

A company I used to work for back in the 70's, had a dept where a couple of blokes worked melting pots....ladling molten metal into moulds, there use to be rats running about, if the blokes saw them and were able to catch them, they would clout the rat with a shovel then whilst it was still alive ( but dazed ) chuck it in the melting pot.

 

Rats are bad because they are ugly?

Foxy woxy has a right to life because it's pretty?

Jeez.

By the same token, should we exterminate ugly people and just keep the pretty ones?

What a ridiculous hypocritical stance you take.

If you can't say anything sensible then you should refrain from discussion......have I said that rats are ugly ?

Why am I ridiculous and hypocritical, I have my views just like you have yours.

In post 2, you write ' They aren't as cute as foxy woxy ' so kill away........then try to get at me because I've said they are a beautiful looking creature - which they are and they do have a right to live.

In post 16, you write ' Fox Hunting is great fun watching the dogs do what they were bred to do '

 

Strikes me that your not only demented and contradict yourself but also a Sadist, people like you who think fox hunting is great fun should be on the receiving end of being ripped apart by a pack of hounds and then see what ' Fun ' it is !

You're happy to melt rats? Nice!

BTW my posts were partly sarcasm - "sar-chasm" it turns out. It is difficult to show this in posts.

Just to be clear where I stand with not sarchasm!

 

Rats are vermin - they need to be controlled. The kindest way to do it is with dogs. They break the neck and they die quickly.

 

Foxes are vermin - they need to be controlled. The kindest way to kill them is with dogs. They catch them and kill them quickly. There are no wounded animals left to die slowly from poisoning, trapping, bad shooting etc.

 

Dropping rats or foxes into melting pots is unpleasant and sounds cruel to me, although I don't understand your sport, I will leave you to decide for yourself.

I'm pro fox hunting as well. The numbers need to be controlled what would you rather see a fox that's been shot and it could take a couple of painful days to die? Or hunting it with dogs where it either lives or dies a fast death I know which one is humane do you?

When ever I've seen a bit of fox hunt I'm always mindful of the damage that gets done to everything the hunt ploughs through - people's property, holding up traffic that sort of thing. That and possibility of ripping apart a reasonably sized animal in front small children who might not have wanted to get involved in it.

You are a hypocrite because you say that foxes have as much right as a human to live but then recount having killed a rat and saying they deserve no sympathy. It is the duality of your stance that marks you out as a hypocrite.

 

Calling someone demented (suffers from dementia) is vulgar you have debased yourself with that comment and should be thoroughly ashamed of yourself.

Good to see a decent reply from both sides of this debate, i'm of the belief that the 'king of the jungle' gets to rule in the animal world, ie the strong rule the weak - it is nature after all, these hounds/terriers are fantastic animals and are doing what they were invented for, like rats - scavenging and spreading disease, and foxes mercilessly killing for no reason and getting bolder and braver in urban areas
