Ullswater Hound and Terrier 1931
You will find precious little on this site about
terriers and hounds, not because I know little about them, but because
they are a minefield to write about. Like football teams they evoke a
fierce partisan rivalry dependent upon type, etc. Various authors have
written much and there are many web sites devoted to the various breeds;
they make, on the whole good reading, but many fail to grasp the terrain
in which they were used or the reason why.
All through my childhood I was told a fell pack was there to kill foxes. If the hounds could not do it on the surface, and if the fox, which had gone to ground, would not bolt then the terrier was expected to kill underground. The name of the game being fox control not sport.
