Social Media

Here we hope to document some of the rhetoric being used by those apposed to hunting. While we appreciate some people disagree with Fieldsports we also believe that correct management of the countryside can only come about be reasoned debate, by those with experience in such matters. Unfortunately with the advent of social media we have a situation where the debate is being led by those who shout loudest….and those who’s threats and opinions are the most violent.

ALF- The animal liberation front is an extreme animal rights movement. Its incredibly worrying when links with the ALF and hunt sabs crop up, its also surprisingly common! When hunt sabs are playing the part of ‘peaceful demonstrators’ and the police and main stream media seem to be believing them. Here is a recent ALF post-

“Either an active fox hunter or a supporter and promoter of killing wild animals solely for entertainment — either way, owner of a heavy-duty 4×4 bearing pro-hunt stickers — got their incendiary gift too. Some call bloodsport uncivilised, but it’s really perfectly reflective of the disdain for the nonhuman, upper class entitlement and also cross-class collaboration which is the basis and content of civilisation. Let’s make the rich and their terrier-boys the hunted, let’s harass them in city or countryside.”
