(WUSA) - Across Great Britain, horses and riders met on Wednesday for their traditional Boxing Day hunt.  Britain's Environment Secretary Owen Paterson claimed that moves to repeal the ban on hunting with dogs in England and Wales may not happen in 2013, although he insisted it was still the government's intention to give MPs a free vote on lifting the ban. The colorful sport of foxhunting, deemed cruel by animal rights advocates, dates back hundreds of years, but more contemporary riders prefer simply 'fox chasing,' with dogs pursuing but not being permitted to destroy the fox.
