Ricky Gervais’ Fox Hunt Opposition on Twitter.

The fox hunt—long held tradition in The UK—has faced opposition before.

Picture a bucolic pastoral scene, magnificent horses, fabulously outfitted riders, a canter through the countryside, dogs enjoying a great romp in the woodlands—great fun for everyone…except the foxes.

For traditionalists, the event is a sign of all that’s well and good and historically fashionable in the UK.

For animal rights activists it’s all about the terror of the fox being hunted. I’ll spare you the details of dogs and foxes in a not-too-casual meet-up.

In BBC news, British comedians are taking up the plight of the fox and raising awareness via social media and they are very good at it. Activists like Ricky Gervais are speaking up for the fox and opposing government in order to stop the hunt.
