Fox hunting across the pond is barbaric.  Posh folks chasing a poor fox to exhaustion only to have the hounds tear the poor creature apart alive.  Appalling and barbaric.

Actually I fox hunted for 15 years and in that time we only killed 2 foxes, both were sick.

The spokesperson in this article seems to be too casual in saying racehorses won’t be impacted. There are many show people involved in TB’s and it only takes one person not following protocol to spread the disease.

The flu in the U.K. is a new strain, and vaccinated horses should have a layer of protection against it.
