Fox Hunting

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from Cambridgeshire on the enduring appeal of the English hunt. Last week, the British House of Commons voted to ban hunting with hounds. The issue now goes to the House of Lords where a majority opposes the ban. While animal rights activists see the hunt as cruel, advocates in the countryside say foxes are a nuisance to farmers that must be culled.
