Sir, Although, commendably, you oppose a hunting ban on libertarian grounds (leading article, 11 July), you maintain not only that "making a sport of killing animals is wrong", but that most of the British public support this contention.

Really? Then why do so few lose any sleep over the shooting of game - a sport in which enjoyment is much more directly dependent on the killing of animals than is the case with hunting?
