Hunt supporter guilty of attacking hunt saboteurs’ vehicle

3rd November 2020

A 19-year-old has pleaded guilty to attacking a car containing hunt saboteurs.

Samuel Hadlow, from Ospringe, near Faversham, confronted members of the East Kent Saboteurs group in his car on September 10 last year, parking across a road in Woodchurch during the confrontation.

As Hadlow turned his car to flee, he landed a damaging blow on the back windscreen of an activist’s Mitsubishi Pajero with a hammer.

A police chase ensued and, after darting out of the car, the hammer was discovered in the driver-side door well.

Appearing at Folkestone Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, he was fined £1,047 after admitting to all the charges against him – driving without a licence, tax or third party insurance and criminal damage.

He also got docked six points for driving without a valid licence.

The West Kent Hunt Sabs have welcomed the conviction and the £180 compensation included in his fines.

They commented on a Facebook post: “We hope this serves as a warning that violence never pays.

“Thank you to all our supporters for your continued support.”

  1. What did he get I suppose a slap on the wrist as usual. The justice system against these hunts ARE so predictable. They just waste taxpayers money. They disgust me.😡😡😡

    1. They should, but they won’t throw the book at the degenerate. These people HAVE to learn that they are NOT above the law. They should make an example of the disgusting lout.😡
