YOUR newspaper commented on this event in Blandford Forum on Friday, March 22.

A spokesman for the hunters commented that the Labour Party, when elected would ban this traditional way of country life.

That is not trail hunting.

That's hunting wildlife with dogs which was banned in 2004.

There is no tradition of trail hunting in the UK.

Trail hunting is a ruse which was introduced after the 2004 ban in order to circumvent it.

Animals are not accidently killed in a trail hunt. The accident is when they are not.
