Good Karma & Positive Vibes

houndsoff-stickers

In these mad times love has never been more important. We’re talking on a worldwide scale as well as closer to homes and hearts. And we acknowledge that it’s not always easy to feel. Sometimes it’s downright impossible. Some of the animal abuse dished out by sport hunters is very hard to take. But please, please hold on to your love. Nurture it as a magic seed that you’d like to grow.

If you read bad or sad news on our social media pages, or see an image which makes you angry then don’t hurl insults but instead channel your emotion into a good thing. We’ve made it easy for everyone to do this.

Go to our Hounds Off online shop and, a couple items down, you’ll see our Sleeping Fox logo as a static-cling window sticker. Buy one. They cost £1.75 online. PayPal gets its cut (that’s life these days) but the balance still gives us about 50p for funds after postage and production costs. Every little helps us to keep supporting people affected by hunt trespass plus sending out leaflets and business cards into the communities where illegal hunting takes place.

The point is, with a few clicks you can vent your spleen in a way that helps us and hunted wildlife. For just a few pennies you get a fab window sticker for your motor or office window and people will see it.

You’re now helping to spread foxy love. An angry post or comment reinforces negative stereotypes. Hunters like that. It speaks their language. Foxy love, on the other hand, is softer, gentler but ultimately stronger. It’s also the last thing hunters want so for that reason alone it’s a legitimate thing to do. But imagine if a stranger connects and thinks, “Hounds Off eh? Hmmm, yes I’m going to do that as well!” Result – real tangible positive energy. Much better, we believe, than feeding the bad karma of the dark side.

    Is displaying disgust at disgusting things a negative response?

      Not at all. But some comments reflect badly on the cause we are all trying to support and this is unhelpful.

        You are right of course. What matters is winning hearts and minds hy demonstrating the civilised attitude that is synonymous with being anti-violence. Even if that is difficult sometimes

        Note to self. .. must try harder!

        :)

    How about also producing a HARE window sticker as well as the one for foxes? There are 89 known hare hunts in England and Wales and the hare has a greater degree of public sympathy, as per repeated Ipsos Mori polls, than foxes. If you can make such a sticker available on your website then I will make our hundreds of members aware that it is available from your website. We do have our own HPT rectangular rear-window sticker but your design is more suitable for car side windows as well as it is smaller. Thanks and best wishes.

      We would love to do that John. If you would be prepared to fund such a thing we will make it happen. Contact us via our email if you’d like to do this and we can take it forward (as they say!)

    Absolutely right. The sad people who have to kill in order to feel anything at all and their badly educated, barely literate clingons are to be pitied. I would hate to be inside their lives and wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy if I had one. Compassion is something they will never understand or have in their lives. How awful is that?

      The underlying reason for their killing obsession is one of emotional immaturity. I believe that, to a varying extent, there is still a primitive hunting/killing instinct in humans going back to the days when we lived in caves and had to hunt for our food. Nowadays it’s all in the supermarkets but some immature individuals cannot suppress that latent tribal urge from the dawn of history and our inoffensive wildlife (which cannot fight back) satisfies their primitive blood lust. They would probably run a mile if the quarry instead targeted them with big teeth and claws!
