I WAS surprised to read in Letters last week the claim of a hunt supporter that most people are against a ban on bloodsports.

In fact, four widely publicised polls in the last eight weeks showed an average of 76 per cent of the population wanting a total ban.

If they, and our MPs, have their way soon we will have a Great Britain to be even more proud of, with a ban on people killing animals for fun. Parliament will at last put an end to a cruel "sport" by a small number of people.
