OK my first sentence was opinion and not exactly backed up by empirical evidence. However there are more than a few op-ed pieces out there that support this view:

http://www.spectator.co.uk/books/22231/the-thrill-of-the-illicit/

http://charliepyesmith.com/book/rural-rites-hunting-and-the-politics-of-prejudice/

Anyway, it's pretty much anecdotal and therefore virtually impossible to prove, much like your assertion that people harvest fox cubs for hunts, and the other part of your answer just reinforces my argument "people with too much money and too much time on their hands" hunts comprise people from all walks of life, to suggest otherwise is just either lazy stereotyping or ignorance in what does go on in rural communities.

Once again, I hold no brief for hunting with hounds, I've never done it, never had the slightest interest in it, and regard it as an anachronistic and hopelessly inefficient way of controlling what, to any small livestock owner or farmer is a serious pest.

My interests are primarily in something like a level playing field, so what I'd like to know is what makes hunting with hounds intrinsically more cruel than jamming a piece of metal through a fishes mouth and then yanking it around on a line until exhausted, as over 6 million people enjoyed doing according to the most recent figures?
