Hunt Saboteurs Association Press Release 12th March 2015
Croydon Hunt saboteurs have had their group land rover damaged whilst parked outside one of their members homes. Valves were cut off two of the tyres causing several hundred pounds worth of damage as the tyres will have to be replaced.
The damage occurred just a few days after the land rover was used to direct an ambulance to help an injured huntsman at the Old Surrey, Burstow and West Kent Hunt. A member of Croydon Hunt Saboteurs, who is also a trained paramedic, provided vital medical treatment until the ambulance arrived.
Earlier in the day a whipper in from the OSBWK had threatened to go to the street where the vehicle is usually parked.
Lee Moon, Spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “There is currently no evidence linking this particular hunt to the damage but it does seem an unlikely coincidence that the land rover is damaged in the same week that Croydon Hunt saboteurs are receiving such positive publicity for providing medical treatment to one of their members. Hunt supporters have a history of damaging saboteurs vehicles but it will not deter us and this vehicle will be utilised as usual this Saturday to stop the illegal and immoral slaughter of wildlife”
