    Foxes live in London now. I bet they all carry knives as well.

    No you’re wrong, it has not been part of the culture, in it’s current form, for very long. Neither is it a part of the culture for the vast majority of the population even in many rural areas.

    Personally I have no objection to the principle, it’s the implementation that annoys me and the monopoly these people think they have on using the countryside.

    Example, one day a year for the Telethon almost everyone gets out doing one sport or another in the countryside for childrens charities. Does this stop the chasse doing their thing even on just this one day, like hell. A few year ago here several children we’re fired at while doing the charity walk on this day. A fight ensued between their parents and the idiots involved.

    I think Roadrat needs to read a history book or two.

    It’s all relative. Animals have only been on the earth for a short time in the grand scheme of things . Never had all this hunting malarkey when there were only vegetables about ! :shock:

    Yeah but they don’t shoot them first :lol: If chasseurs ate the boar alive there wouldn’t be all this hooha about hunting. :roll:

    Thinking about this. I find it quite shocking that the level of marksmanship is so bad that several children could be fired at but , and I’m only assuming here , none of them were killed. Isn’t there some sort of accuracy test before chasse licences are issued?

    Yes there is a competency test – it’s the addition of alcohol to the mix that causes most problems.

    This is a petition supported by non hunters and good hunters who feel the need to improve safety surrounding ‘ la chasse ‘ ( after all hunters are sometimes the victims of other hunters )

    I’ve seen hunting dogs on our land. I’m worried what will happen when we take our two cats to France; one is quite elderly. Do we have any rights to stop hunters and their dogs on our land?

    Not really and if you invoke any rights you might have, I’d suggest you’re probably more likely to lose your cats. We lost one of ours years ago, neighbor saw it happen, cat was shot but only injured so they let the dogs finish it off.

    Luckily the head of the local chasse is now our tenant farmer so I have some influence if required.

    S**t. Can I put up any signs? Our cats are part of our family – we never had kids. That’s like saying to the hunters how would they like their children being torn to death.

    Yes, you can put up signs, and they’re definitely respected around my area. The local chasse are all villagers after all and it’s only the odd few here and there in France that aren’t good..
