Sir: John Harding (letter, 26 November), rightly points out that the problem with fox hunting is that people enjoy it. After all, people kill flies too, but even hunt supporters might discourage their children from pulling their legs and wings off for fun.

As long as foxes are killed for fun, the law permits different standards of different people. It is hard to believe that inner-city yobs who pursued an urban fox on motor-bikes and beat it to death would not be prosecuted, even if it had eaten grandma's cat.
