let me expand....Don't think its a particularly poor piece, look around you the same thing is happening here, not a great deal of youngsters interested in taking up hunting, modern farming not great for wildlife look at the decline in brown hares and grey partridges .
Anti movement growing in strength, there are a lot of similarities.
This article from the Telegraph back in early September would suggest otherwise: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/problem-solving/poisonous-pellets-the-slug-and-snail-plague-is-lethal-for-dogs/'The hare eat the pellets the farmers put down for the slugs and die.'

Thanks for that Willie,I don't use them on my garden but I thought some of the comments on that thread were a bit cavalier.This article from the Telegraph back in early September would suggest otherwise: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/problem-solving/poisonous-pellets-the-slug-and-snail-plague-is-lethal-for-dogs/

harming animals. - Is that what we do?
He had already missed a stag the previous week. What species were they hunting? Do we know ? nothing unusual about missing
It struggles on the ground for a moment before his dog finishes it off and brings it to its master. A beautiful bird. Still warm. - have you lads got crocodiles for gundogs? � no not a great choice of words but nothing we have not seen often enough.
And the clothes that make you look like you've walked in from a war zone, - aye, okay Rambo , Camo still worn be a great many hunters
Don't see anything that is that different from here.
