WARNING DISTURBING VIDEO
This film was taken by Joe Hashman working as an investigator for the League Against Cruel Sports. It was taken on October 30th 1996 at the kennels of the Cheshire Foxhounds.
This was one of two hounds shot by the hunt kennelman that day. The bodies of both hounds were dumped in a metal bin. The hunt later claimed that the hounds were sick.
Each year hunts in the UK routinely kill thousands of hounds for a variety of reasons. After they have hunted for only around five or six seasons they are considered too old and are shot. Other hounds can be killed when far younger if they are reluctant to hunt, are disobedient in any way or have any one of a variety of faults including even (in the past) being just the wrong colour.
