Excerpt from Killing for Sport: Essays by Various Writers

In a civilised community, where the services of the hunter are no longer required, blood sports are simply an anachronism, a relic of savagery which time will gradually remove; and the appeal against them is not to the interested parties whose practices are arraigned - not to the belated Nim rods who find a pleasure in killing - but to that force of public opinion which put down bear baiting, and which will in like manner put down the kindred sports (for all these barbarities are essentially akin) which are defended by similar sophistries.
