Letter: Hunt angers country people too

Sir: We are asked to feel pity for the industry hunting supports, and not ban hunting because to do so would end hundreds of years of tradition. The communities that the hunt supports would suffer great hardship caused by the consequent unemployment.

How many hunt supporters stood alongside the miners when their industry and communities were wiped out? The suffering the mine closure programme caused to hundreds of thousands of people in this country puts the plight of the hunt in perspective. If you are a hunt supporter or employee, don't ask for my sympathy.
