Surely the Corinthian ideals of sport require that consent is given by the participants. If the English rugby pack marched across a field and set upon a rambler we would not call it sport. Similarly, if a heavyweight boxing champion launched an effective one-two combination at a pensioner at a bus stop we would not call it sport.
Equally, when 60 dogs, 30 mounted riders and scores of followers terrorise a wild mammal we do not call it sport. At least most of us do not.
