Anti-hunting alliances (yes there were a few of those even that far back in
history) and also foxhound trainers would pull a smelly dried smoked herring
across the dogs' anticipated track to throw it off of the scent of the fox.
This was to disrupt the hunt and hopefully to spare the life of said
fox. During training exercises the red herring was used to increase the
foxhound's ability to find its prey under adverse conditions. Fox meat is
edible, although very tough, but the English aristocracy hunted them for
sport, not for food.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
