On Fox Hunting

Wethersfield Institute - Lecture Archives

In this talk, recorded at the Wethersfield Estate on October 6, 2018, Sir Roger Scruton introduces the audience to some of the mysteries of country life. His talk is a plea for tolerance toward a sport in which the love of animals prevails over the pursuit of them, and in which Nature herself is the center of the drama.
