For an example of the kind of “successful hunts” Ms Leadsom means, see this article.
Not so appetising now, is it?
Andrea Leadsom said she would hold a vote to repeal the fox hunting ban if she became Tory leader because the act, which prohibits the hunting of wild animals with dogs, is not “in the interest of animal welfare”.
The Tory MP is contending with Theresa May to become the next Prime Minister, with the final decision in the hands of the Conservative Party membership.
In an interview with ITV News on Thursday, Leadsom called foxes “vermin” and complimented “successful hunts” held in her constituency of South Northamptonshire.
