REGARDING your Comment 'Pro-hunting emotive ploy stinks' (LET, January 16), how right you are.

Hunt master Arnold Greenhalgh's threat to kill his hounds is nothing short of blackmail.

The dogs could still be used for drag hunting, but this would not be as exciting as charging and killing a live animal. Need I say more?
