Sir: Your report about the Advertising Standards Authority adjudications on our adverts (12 April) neglected to mention that it rejected six out of the nine complaints made by hunt supporters. The authority agreed with our assertion that foxes can die of pathological shock from the stress and trauma they undergo as part of the hunt. It agreed they could be simply ripped apart by the hounds before death, and could also suffer extensive abdominal wounding. It also agreed that vixens were hunted while pregnant.
