In this first of four hard hitting episodes we sit down with a hunt saboteur. We put to him some common misconceptions and frequently asked questions to explore what it means to be a saboteur.
It is important to note that the views of this saboteur are not representative of the experience of saboteurs across the country.

The second video – The Hunt Sabs – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ7cAxoQSYU
The Hunt Sabs is a short documentary examining a group of animal activists who sabotage illegal fox hunts. These hunt saboteurs are on the frontline, out in the countryside for half of the year waging war against the hunters and terrier men.
The 2004 Hunting Act banned the hunting of wild mammals with dogs in England and Wales. It does not ban the use of dogs to flush out a wild mammal (such as a fox). Despite the illegality of these hunts, illegal fox hunts still take place.
There are two sides; the opposers to hunting say lack of policing towards the issue, means these illegal hunts still continue however those who partake in hunting say that they are trail hunting and it isn’t their fault if their dogs pick up a real fox scent.
This documentary will focus on the hunt sabs day on a hunt from start to finish, intertwined with footage from hunts and protests. Contrasting the high-energy of protests and hunt sabbing between the often-long days with a lot of this time standing around waiting.
