Bicester Hunt and Whaddon Chase – Tuesday 12th October 2021 – Priors Hardwick, Warwickshire

Video of the Bicester Hunt with Whaddon Chase actively hunting a fox which is then killed by the hounds in thick undergrowth. Our sab struggled on hands and knees to get through the undergrowth to get to the fox. The body of the fox is eventually taken from the hounds by our sab.
With the verdict due this week for the MFHAs chief trail layer Mark Hankinson this is yet more evidence that “trail hunting” is nothing more than a smokescreen. The Huntsman can be seen hunting on the hounds in full cry. Moments later a fox is seen running from the hounds. The fact our sab struggled so much navigating through the hedge and undergrowth shows how impossible it would be to lay a trail in the hedgerow. Finally the landowner came out afterwards and told us the hunt were not even allowed on his land which means that they were trespassing and couldn’t have laid a trail there anyway.
Please don’t let this foxes’ death be forgotten. If you are a member of the National Trust please use your vote to vote FOR the proposal to ban all forms of trail hunting on National Trust land. Trail hunting is a lie. It doesn’t exist.
