Chasing foxes around the countryside on horseback accompanied by a pack of hounds is a stupefyingly inefficient way of controlling 'pests',
and half the time the hunters will try to defend their 'sport' by claiming that they hardly ever actually catch a fox.
I agree that genuine pests need to be controlled, but that's never really been what fox hunting is about.

Also, destroying people's gardens if that's the way the hunt goes.

That too.
It's a myth that everyone in the countryside is a fan of their local hunt.

There used to be a gang from Walsall who would contact the Hunt Saboteurs Association to see which hunts they weren't opposing that week so as not to give them bad publicity. Then they'd go along, dressed in overalls and crash helmets, drag hunters off their horses and give them a kicking.
