People in a town in England objected to fox hunting as unfair to a small fox. So, the night before a hunt, they took strong smelling "red herring" fish and dragged them through the fields. The next morning, when the hounds took off (with hunters on horseback right behind them), the hounds were led off the track of the fox by the scent of the red herring...and the fox got away!
