Foxhunting, which is riding a horse into the wilds followed by a pack of hounds for the purpose of hunting foxes, is legal in Canada.

It may seem just like any type of hunting, but Foxhunting is especially cruel. The fox is chased for sport, which terrifies the animal all for the sake of enjoyment for the hunter. The hunters try to prolong the chase simply for the sake of 'the rush.' And, when the fox is finally caught by the hounds, they tear it apart while it is alive.

There are various Canadian Foxhunting groups like: The London Hunt, Eglinton & Caledon Hounds, The Hamilton Hunt Club, Ottawa Valley Hunt, Toronto & North York Hunt, Wellington-Waterloo Hunt, and Beaver Meadow Foxhounds.








Most of these organizations claim they are hunting 'scent trails,' which are artificially placed trails of fox scent for the hounds to hunt. However, there's a loophole in the case that they find a real fox in the way and 'can't control the hounds,' leading to the mutilation of the fox. The fox may even be attracted to the scent trail, smelling another fox and going for a closer look.

Foxhunting is brutal and unnecessary, and has already been banned in England, where it began. We should follow the example of ending this brutal sport.
