I have come across a number of people here involved in the defence of blood sports and their campaign for the acceptance of inflicting damage on to others . In the UK up until 2000, the National Coursing club awarded points to dogs that killed hares through stealth and speed (House of Commons Standing Committee F (pt 8)) . This would indicate to me that bloodlust was widely acceptable until people obviously campaigned their MP's to change it in the UK. A step up from this blood lust is the graduation theory that people whom are involved of the enjoyment of inflicting torture upon animals are , if you will excuse the pun, a hares breath from stepping up to kill humans (From Animal Cruelty to Serial Murder: Applying the Graduation Hypothesis ? Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol). There is a vast difference between killing an animal to survive as this indicates an inate human need to survive and continue on to live but blood lust is a different ball game. I invite the pro blood sports campaigners to disprove the graduation theory.....
