The Countryside Alliance has published a free booklet designed to introduce young people to hunting.
An Introduction to Fox Hunting is a 16-page document targeted at secondary-school children. It covers a range of topics, such as facts about the fox as a species, a guide to a day’s hunting and important hunting terms.
“We get numerous requests for material from young people taking part in school and college debates on hunting and so have tailored this document especially for them,” said Jim Barrington, animal welfare consultant for the Countryside Alliance.
“I attend many debates to talk about hunting and there is a real thirst for information from young people; it is up to us to provide the facts so that informed debate, and a healthy interest in the countryside, can follow.”
The booklet has an informative but fun tone and, with plenty of illustrations, has been designed to stimulate the younger mind.
For copies of the booklet please contact Henrietta Lee at the Countryside Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Countryside Alliance stand at The CLA Game Fair (19-21 July), at Ragley Hall, Warwicks.
