Hunt Saboteurs Association News Release. 29th December 2016
Hunt Saboteurs were attacked by terrier men from the Ledbury Hunt at their Castlemorton meet on Wednesday December 28th. The unprovoked attack happened after hounds from the hunt had chased a fox into a badger sett. Sabs intervened to save the fox and were attacked by the hunt employees.
This footage clearly shows the unprovoked attack on sabs by one of the terriermen. He throws a sab to the ground, punches them repeatedly and kicks out at other sabs nearby. We are asking for help to identify this man so that we can pass the information on to the police. If you know who he is please pm us on facebook or contact Bristol saboteurs directly via the email address on the video.
Lee Moon, Spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “Both hunting a fox with hounds and interfering with a badger sett are illegal activities. These are clearly desperate men who will take desperate measures to satisfy their bloodlust. Well done Bristol Hunt Saboteurs for getting such clear footage of the assailant. We look forward to West Mercia Police launching a prompt investigation and bringing him to justice. Please contact the Hunt Saboteurs Association or West Mercia Police if you can identify this man.”
