Huntsman charged with illegal hunting as a result of joint League and RSPCA case

13 August 2013

The League Against Cruel sports and the RSPCA are working jointly on a Hunting Act prosecution. Following an operation by the League’s Investigations Team, footage was submitted to the RSPCA prosecutions department, the RSPCA has served a summons on Will Goffe, huntsman for the Ledbury Hunt, for allegedly breaching the Hunting Act 2004.

A preliminary hearing will take place at Worcester Magistrates Court at 2.30pm on 3 October 2013.

Having carefully considered the available evidence the RSPCA has decided there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that it is in the public interest to instigate a private prosecution in this case. This decision was taken having regard to the guidance to prosecutors set out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors.
