Ricky Gervais has taken to Twitter in anger over David Cameron’s plans to lift the ban on fox hunting.
Following the Conservative victory in the General Election 2015, Ricky Gervais took to Twitter to remind his 8 million followers about David Cameron’s desire to overturn the ban on fox hunting.
He wrote furiously: “David Cameron says he wants to repeal the fox hunting ban.
And he didn’t stop there, also sharing a video of an adorable fox enjoying a cuddle from a human friend.
His disbelief palpable, Ricky captioned it: “The most powerful man in Britain wants the freedom to hunt this animal on horseback and watch dogs rip it to pieces.”
The comedian and animal rights activist continued: “‘Fox hunting is humane’
“Ah, that’s why a vet always adopts the gentle method of “ripped to bits by dogs” when you put a pet cat down.”
After sharing a cute photo of a fox cub enjoying an afternoon snooze, he wrote: “I can’t understood how anyone can enjoy watching a bull slowly speared to death, two dogs fighting, or a fox ripped apart.
Speaking with Countryside Alliance magazine in March, David Cameron famously criticised the 2004 Hunting Act passed by the Labour Government.
The act bans the hunting of wild animals, including but not limited to foxes, deer and hares.
