Cheshire Hounds, Marbury, 24.2.18
We are delighted to reveal that Cheshire Monitors will be the subject of a special report on BBC’s The One Show tonight 6th March at 7pm.
Our team were joined by a BBC crew and presenter Joe Crowley at the Cheshire Hounds’ meet in Marbury on 24th February, where they were witness to the lie that is so-called trail hunting, and all its associated activities; these included masked-up terrier men, numerous blocked badger setts and a monitor being injured.
Indeed, although we thought the hunt would be in ‘best behaviour mode’ following three separate police interviews earlier in the week (for illegal hunting, a death threat, and possible assault), they still managed to chase two foxes in front of our team.
We have covert footage of one of these incidents, which we believe shows the fox being purposely released to be chased from within woodland at Marley Green. This footage is now with police, and thankfully, we believe both foxes we saw escaped to live another day.
The hunt were a little taken aback (to put it mildly) when they were made aware of the presence of the team from The One Show, and clearly worried about the implications of their usual activities being seen by 5 million viewers. Shortly afterwards all the day’s proceedings were quickly brought to an abrupt end.
(We’ll post some ‘behind the scenes’ footage soon).
As this year’s hunting season draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our hugely expanded team of wonderful, dedicated individuals who have given their time to monitor Cheshire’s hunts numerous times a week for more than five months. Thanks to them, and the increasing support from local residents, we are proud to report that all three Cheshire hunts are currently under police investigation, with a PCC review into the policing of hunts taking place, and assurances by local MPs that they will push for a strengthening of the laws that currently fail our precious wildlife. Thank you to everyone who has played their part!
