I was absolutely outraged that the North Shropshire Hunt took it upon
themselves to rampage with hounds through the Brown Moss Nature
Reserve, Whitchurch, on October 14, allowing these dogs to chase water
fowl amongst other things.
When approached they are quoted as saying they were merely
exercising/collecting the dogs.
Come on! None of us are that thick. Besides which, who in their right
mind would take 20 unleashed hounds rampaging through a designated
nature reserve renowned for its protected species of Great Crested
Newts, flora and fauna and where dog walkers go for the peace and
tranquillity and where parents feel safe in letting youngsters walk,
run and play?
What a pretentious lot you are. If exercising the hounds is what you
are doing, then do not allow them to chase the local duck population.
Keep them under control, on leads, like the rest of us responsible dog
walkers. If you cannot control the direction in which your dogs go,
then you shouldnt be out with them.
