Hunting with hounds has become one of the most controversial debates in British life in recent years. Fox hunting was made illegal last year and, though public debate has to some extent died down since the time of the ban, the issues are still contentious for many people. Those who hunt say the ban has destroyed rural livelihoods and traditional practices that are centuries old. Those opposed say hunting is a cruel and unnecessary practice that leads to the savage deaths of countless foxes and hares each year. The Horn of the Hunter features opinions from all sides of the debate, drawn from extensive interviews with both pro- and anti-hunt supporters across the UK.
