Six hunt hounds killed by train in Devon

A DEVON hunt has said that six of its hounds were killed after being hit by a train on Saturday.

The hounds belonged to the Dartmoor Hunt and were part of a larger pack which ran onto the tracks near Ivybridge.

Around 30 dogs are thought to have been on the tracks between Langham Levels and Fardel Bridge. Several were hit by a passing train.

Joint-master, Tom Lyle, said: “It was very upsetting to all involved.”

“Some hounds ran onto the railway line and were killed.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to the hunt before and it was very upsetting to all involved.”

The incident occurred at around midday on Saturday.

Network Rail said they were contacted by the police to alert them that a pack of hunting dogs were unaccompanied on the line.

The rail company then received a call from a train driver to say that he had gone through the area and had noticed the pack of dogs. He reported that his train had struck six of them.

  1. Oh yes very upsetting to see the dogs killed but who’s fault was it that they were there in the first place. This scum are upset about the dogs but don’t give a f**k about the animals that are torn to bits by these dogs, two faced bastards.
