Hunt: Frenzy of hounds

In reply to Mr Faithfull’s letter about hounds (February 20).

They may be calm before the hunt starts, but during the frenzy of the chase their instinct kicks in, and so-called accidents occur.

As reported in the media, around Robin Hood’s Bay area, a pet cat was torn to pieces.

In another part of Yorkshire a lama was killed on property where a bridle path runs alongside, which the hunt use, along with numerous incidents involving foxes and people’s pets being attacked by hounds.

I would like to inform Mr Faithfull, I do not have eyesight problems, because I did see a fox running away.
