Letter from Judi About Fox Hunting - 10 Apr 2009

Dear Mary and Frank,

In my local paper this week there's a picture of Barrack Obama enjoying Welsh lamb at the GM summit. The Welsh lamb he's tucking into was provided by Welsh farmer Daphne Tilley, who had and probably still does have connections to the Flint & Denbigh hunt here in North Wales.

According to a kindly old gentleman who owns a wood close to the village of Llansannan, where the Tilleys used to farm, a fox could often be seen being brought to the farm in a pick-up truck. The poor animal would be bagged up in a sack. The next day, he would always see a fox fleeing the farm just minutes ahead of the hounds. And remember, a bagged fox will likely be injured from the dig out, and being so traumatized it will have messed itself. So bloody and stinking in it's own urine, this animal would be easy to track, by even the worst of hounds.

Mr. Charles also told me that because he wouldn't allow this hunt access to his wood, he would often find his house daubed in disgusting paint.

When he sold his house and moved away, he asked the new owners to keep an eye on his wood, which thankfully they did. When the hunt heard that Mr. Charles had moved out, Daphne Tilley called to see the new owners to ask if they could hunt through the wood? They told her to go away!

It seems really ironic that Barrack Obama should feast on meat from this cruel human creature, when it was the animal rights lobby that helped get rid of his main opponent, because of her involvement in animal cruelty.

Kind Regards, Judi
