"Fox Hunting, California Style" (Life, Feb. 6) gave us an insightful look at a group of people trying to grasp hold of a time and era which no longer exists. When the club members adorn themselves in the traditional styles of the old English hunt clubs, they also embrace the traditional ethics and values of a time long past.
At present, there are many caring individuals who have adopted a respectful, caring attitude and behavior toward all living creatures. The coyote which finds itself the target of this "team sport" is no less deserving of its life than any other living creature.
I would like to believe the club member who said, "We're basically people who love animals." However, the attitudes perpetuated by this glamorized "sport" do not reflect the concern this individual claims to embrace.
