Following last week’s attempt by Surrey Union riders to knock people down and issue death threats, six sab groups convened for a return visit to show we will not be intimidated. The groups from South Coast, Brighton, Croydon, Chicester and Guildford descended on the Surrey Union kennels at 5 am and waited for the hunt to leave.
Surrey police who did nothing last week, decided that these actions could be classified as intimidation, unlike death threats, but we stood our ground, and no arrests were made for these dubious reasons. A single hunt supporter did drive her car at speed at saboteurs and then take photos from a distant, which was again not seen as problem by the police.
As the sun rose high in the sky it was clear that the hunt was not going to leave the kennels so all groups left.
If any hunt tries to stop our members by threats and physical violence watching their activities it is clear they are up to no good. Such hunts will receive similar treatment and find themselves with many more sabs than usual to contend with.
