Letter: Cruel foxes

Sir: I do not hunt. I farm. On occasions I swear at the hunt for damage it does but am treated with courtesy by the perpetrators.

Charlie and his lady displayed no courtesy last Monday morning when they took two sitting guinea birds, necessitating swooping 53 eggs into an incubator.

I suppose I could stand round at 4.30 in the morning with a shotgun to dispatch a nursing vixen. I prefer tried methods of control. They work.
