Odd French survey o' the day

They just keep on coming:

"Do you feel safe walking in the countryside during the hunting season?"

The majority do not, with 54% not feeling safe and 46% feeling safe. All credit to the Plain People of France in that there were no 'don't knows'.

The raw figures vary a lot when the demographic detail is looked at, with a majority of men - 57% - feeling safe and nigh on two-thirds of women not feeling safe - 64%.

Feelings of safety decline with age, before rising with the over 65s, perhaps reflecting the opportunities to get a backside full of buckshot.

Rural communes see a majority happy to go daisy picking - 51%, while the denizens of Greater Paris are the least happy -43%. 2% of Parisians are don't knows, presumably because they have never been to the countryside.

The hunters of the South West must be doing something right - apart from shooting things - as only 19% of South Westerners (hello Mum) feel very unsafe during the hunting season, compared to 31% of South Easterners feeling the same way.

A follow up question asks the Gauls whether they are in favour of a ban on hunting on Sundays, with 54% pro. There is little variance by age or sex. Tragically neither question has political demographics supplied.
