Having read your article regarding the burning of a fox in your edition of February 26, I am convinced that mankind’s moral turpitude knows no bounds.

What drives people to want to kill and destroy? Just what sort of satisfaction do they derive from the killing, maiming and suffering of wild animals?

It is indeed a sick society in which we live when we have people who wish to reintroduce hunting with dogs, who delight in attempting to blast pheasants out of the sky (some of the “markspersons” could not hit a barndoor with a banjo) and then, as in some well-documented cases, plough literally thousands of pheasants into the ground, all in the name of sport for the likes of our Hooray Henries and Sadistic Sarahs.
