Ban the inhumane practice of fox hunts.

No creature deserves to die in terror with its heart ready to explode after a relentless chase by packs of dogs led by people on horseback.  If this practice was performed on one of the dogs in the pack, it would be a crime.  Even murderers that get the death penalty don't die such a horrible death. The U.K., where this barbaric "sport" was popular for centuries, has banned it since 2005.  Hunting can be done ethically where the game is killed quickly and cleanly just like farm animals.  I have seen this massive gang attack of humans and dogs on a small animal half the size of the dogs that chase it.  It is brutal and disgusting.  Our state's endorsement of it cheapens ethical hunting where the humane killing of game is required.
