Noted and letter sent. I just sent a short letter because I am not much good at writing e-mails as I have a hard time finding the words I want to use {due to a closed brain injury and memory problems}. I normally don't do the campaigns where I have to write my own letter for that very reason but this one is so cruel and heinous that I did it. Thanks so much, Cher.

This barbaric practice is common here in the Midwest, as well. Call it whatever euphemism you choose, it is institutionalized savagery. Signed and forwarded.

This was my letter:
I'm speaking up for those that don't have voice!
Foxes have the same right to live as do humans (probably more so)
This bloody event can not be called a sport. Only sadists will participate.
The human race should have evolved beyond this kind of amusement, by now!
But there are always those that drag behind. That's why we need laws to protect the innocent foxes againts those that enjoy seeing their blood.

Very important to sign this as it goes to the decision makers in determining policy, a policy that should not be allowed. Our government should not be protecting people who enjoy terrorizing and brutally killing animals. This needs to be outlawed. Please Sign!

signed. Makes as much sense as the fox hunts in England. Boxing is a more "fair" sport. Two humans punching the snot out of each other for $ and a claim to a title that can be taken by the next fighter with some lucky punches. That makes more sense.

Signed and shared. Virginia is known for their fox hunts which I've witnessed as they used to ride right through our property. This goes beyond cruelty. I've signed and shared.
