Letter: Going to earth
Thursday 04 February 1999
The late Duke of Beaufort, a former president of Mr Latham's organisation, stated in 1980 that artificial earths are built "to provide somewhere for local foxes to have their cubs: in other words for breeding purposes". A H B Hart, Secretary of the Masters of Fox Hounds Association, said in 1987 that they are constructed to "provide suitable places for foxes to breed". Albert Spring, writing in Shooting Gazette in 1993, stated that they are "used primarily as breeding chambers".
Officials of the Countryside Alliance really must make more of an effort to remain "on message".
