Most of those who are un-moved by the plight of either the fox or the hunting fraternity have greeted the ban with widespread indifference, although some have suggested that the government should stop wasting Parliamentary time debating these "trivial" issues and focus instead on the "real issues" (i.e.
sorting out the National Heath Service, policing, school class sizes, etc.).
This ban carries a penalty of six months in prison and a fine of up to £5,000 (about US,270 or €7,140).
While the ban technically forbids the practise of hunting with hounds, it is worded such that mounted huntspeople are allowed to chase the fox, provided they have no more than two hounds and that the fox is either shot or killed by a bird of prey.

At 6pm (GMT) on Thursday 18th November 2004, MPs voted 321 to 204 in favour of an outright ban on hunting with hounds in England, ending some seven years of Political ping-pong between MPs and the House of Lords.
Moreover, the ban -- which came into force on 18th February 2005 -- saw disturbing threats of civil disobedience from hunt supporters, who claimed they will break the law to keep their tradition alive.
More recently, hunting with hounds was outlawed in Scotland in 2002.
Moreover, the ban still permits the use of terriers to flush out foxes that have "gone to ground", because the hunt is seen as a form of pest control.
Indeed, not only has fox hunting continued (with slight modification) in Scotland, but the number of foxes killed per season by the hunts has almost doubled.
A considerable bone of contention with the passing of this bill was the use of the Parliament Act to push it through the House of Lords - the Lords have repeatedly rejected the bill, not least it has been suggested, because many of them hunt.
For those who haven't been keeping up with all this chaos and confusion, I would like to fill you in on the basics of the ban, as well as looking at some of the facts and misapprehensions surrounding fox hunting.
