Is it ignoble to chase the fox? ©

Is it not ignoble to chase the fox?
Is it not a noble creature surely?
Is it not a fellow creature as are we?
Are it's crimes beyond forgiving?
Is it not just out to earn it's living?
Has it no right to share the world with you and me?
It may not kill to eat but is driven,
By natural instincts Nature has given.
Need we hunt down every fox relentlessly?
Some times we need to kill
But it shouldn't be for a thrill
Or because it once was thought
That this was some kind of sport
Surely there must be a better way.
