Hound killed on busy road during illegal fox hunt.

Hound killed on busy road during illegal fox hunt

A hound from the Cotswold Vale Farmers Hunt was killed by a lorry, on the A38, South of Tewkesbury, today during an illegal fox hunt. Members of the Hunt Saboteurs Association who were present said the hunts pack of hounds were illegally chasing a fox when one of them ran straight into the road and was killed outright by a lorry that had no opportunity to stop. It was only the presence of the hunt saboteurs that prevented further fatalities as they were able to stop more hounds running into the road.

Lee Moon from the Hunt saboteurs Association said: “If, as the Hunts like to claim, they were trail hunting then what were they doing near such a busy road. The hunting community don’t care about the lives of either the hunted animals or the ones they employ to illegally chase them. The Cotswold Vale Farmers should be thanking the hunt saboteurs for preventing more of their hounds from being killed.”

  1. These scum that hunt are a disgrace with no thoughts for the poor animal they chase or for the dogs or the horses. These people are out of control they act like savages lashing out at hunt protestors. On this occasion and many many more they are hunting illegally and pretending they are drag hunting what liars these cretins are, only two dogs are allowed to go hunting and the poor innocent creature caught has to be shot immediately, this is NOT happening and something needs to be done. I have today emailed Cameron with my thoughts about all this disgusting cruelty and am waiting for a reply.
