Sir: Hunting people might themselves have taken a little of the heat off their so-called "sport" if they had started the Countryside Alliance when intensive farming first made the land hideous with the building of huge sheds in which animals were incarcerated in appalling conditions and animal husbandry became mechanised until the animals themselves are now little more than mere cogs in a vast food-producing machine. Yet the hunting fraternity said nothing about "traditional country values" until their own pleasures were threatened.
