The Cotswold Vale Fox Hunt killed a pregnant vixen on Tuesday 6th March this year. While the kill was not seen on film, monitors heard the fox scream and managed to make their way on to land afterwards in an attempt to find evidence of the kill. It all happened so fast that monitors believe that the fox may have been a "bagged" fox that was released in front of the hounds.  Terrier-men were quick to get into the area of the kill and remove the body of the vixen, but the vixen's unborn cubs were found scattered around the field by monitors.
