Fox hunting UK

Today, Wednesday June 7, US animal advocates can weigh in on the UK fox hunt, or, preferably, on the treatment of animals here in the US, in response to an article in USA Today titled, “Fox hunting a battleground in U.K. general election; Animal rights groups angry at Theresa May’s support for it.” (Page 3A). That second part of the heading (which does not appear in the online version) is a little misleading, and perhaps indicative of what reporters are used to seeing the US, where both major parties support hunting and only animal rights activists are assumed to oppose it. The article, however, by Jane Onyanga-Omara tells us, “The Labour Party is urging people to sign a petition against overturning the ban.”
Not mentioned in this USA Today article is that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn recently tweeted, “Fox hunting is barbarous. Under my Labour government it will remain banned and we will advance animal rights. #KeepTheBan ”

It badly needs comments underneath it. Please join the conversation. Also, please consider a quick letter to USA Today, using the article as a springboard for your words on behalf of animals. USA Today takes letters at letters@usatoday.com or via this form: http://tinyurl.com/zs4ftbu and advises, “Letters are edited for accuracy, clarity and length. Submissions of 200 words or fewer have the best chance of being published. Letters that include a name, address, day and evening phone numbers, and that are verified by USA TODAY, are considered for publication.”

Animals here in the US need your attention and your voice. Please take a moment for them, and write a few words.
