Furthermore, according to NOP Market Research (1974), fox hunting is the most common form of hunting with dogs and kills at most 4% of those foxes that die each year. While the charity is often endorsed and promoted through campaigns, protests and politicians, it relies on the work of volunteers and donations from the general public. The most recent achievement of the organisation was that it was the founder of ‘Team Badger’, the coalition of animal welfare organisations campaigning against the 2012 and 2013 badger

From a young age of 12 I took an interest in the differences between foxes and dogs.

    Predator control programs have killed hundreds of native animal species in hopes to benefit livestock producers and to enhance game populations. However, the animals they are killing, beavers, wolves, and many other carnivores, are important benefactors of ecosystems. Bradley Bergstrom said in his article “License to Kill” that “leading ecologists have concluded that many of the world’s pandemics, irruptions of undesirable species and collapses of desirable ones, and destabilization of ecosystems…have been caused by the loss of apex predators” (et al. 131). The loss of major apex predators is due to predator control, which once started creates a malicious cycle of deterioration in the ecosystem that is hard to reverse.…

    Packs of coyotes are especially dangerous, and are capable of taking down a fully grown deer. While single coyotes are still a threat to deer, it would be rare for one to attempt a task such as trying to kill a fully grown buck. According to a study about coyotes and fawns,“ Fruit was the only food item in the coyote diet more important than fawns during the fawning season” (Kilgo 5). Often a lone coyote will go after the fawns of a doe, or a yearling. If predators are a problem in an area, lack habitat will be a deciding factor for survival.…
