LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND - In a highly secret, behind the scenes, "blue blood grass effort", the sport of Fox Hunting is being touted as the next new Summer Olympic event.
An unidentified source has revealed several highly influential supporters from certain countries that have practiced the sport for generations, want the event in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
"Over our dead bodies!" responded the President of the "International Society of Humans Against Fox Hunting", Rupert Chalmsworth. "We know who is really behind this plot to undermine the safety and protection of the fox throughout the world, particularly the red fox, Vulpes Vulpes. We plan to initiate a protest campaign in America, using famous Hollywood celebrities, who we all know are WAY more powerful than certain other powerful entities that shall remain unnamed for our own protection."
It has been reported that Hollywood favorites and animal rights activists, Betty White and Kristen Bell, are willing to take on the cause on the West Coast and Howard and Beth Stern on the East Coast.
"We shall prevail," exclaimed Chalmsworth, "We will not rest until Brother Fox is safe everywhere in the world, including the Olympics!"
