    I cannot understand how people can be so cruel and uncompassionate and attack deer and to let dogs too . Something go to give and stop the hobby of hunting for killing .

    NOTHING justifies treating a sentient animal to this physical & mental torture. Chasing the stag with hounds & horses till it is so exhausted it literally collapses after the effort. In extreme pain due to the long pursuit, hardly able to breathe, frothing at the mouth, frightened for its life. Would we treat cows, pigs, lambs like this?? There would be a huge outcry & multiple prosecutions, so WHY DO WE CONDONE THIS SYSTEMATIC TORTURE & ANIMAL ABUSE??? The poor stag is then shot as a reward for providing good “sport”. That is a misnomer if ever there was one. Yeugh!!
