Hunting symposium: videos online

In November, in conjunction with Winchester’s Institute for Value Studies we hosted a major symposium on hunting. We considered questions such as, “Is hunting a noble tradition, freeing the landscape from dangerous predators which are given quick, clean deaths? Or is it an outdated blood sport, with no legitimate place in civilised society? Should the government repeal the Hunting Act?” A range of fascinating speakers (including, by video, world leading primatologist Dr Jane Goodall), presented a wealth of expertise about hunting. We’ve now made their videos available online.

So if you’re interested in words of wisdom re vegan training tips read them; if you’re interested in words distinctly lacking in wisdom - particularly relating to the little-known sport of extreme ironing, then do check out my chapter - it’s made for you.

Hunting symposium: University of Winchester
