​Huntsman bailed after court appearance over hunt saboteur GBH charge

September 02, 2015

Huntsman Mark Doggrell has appeared before Taunton Crown Court this morning charged with causing grievous bodily harm to a hunt saboteur, who was knocked down by his horse.

Mr Doggrell, aged 45, huntsman with the Blackmore and Sparkford Vale Hunt, has been bailed until the next court hearing which was set for December 11.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared before South Somerset Magistrates at Yeovil last month and the case was sent for trial at the crown court.

The injured saboteur, Nicola Rawson, known as ‘Nid’ among animal rights campaigners, was left with seven broken ribs and a collapsed lung when she was hit by a horse while out monitoring the Blackmore and Sparkford Vale Hunt in August 2014.
