Lee Moon, spokesperson for the Hunt saboteurs association, stated: " The Ross Harriers continue to act outside the law and think they can get away with it. We are pleased that  the police have taken the last two incidents seriously and arrested the aggressors and we strongly urge them to do the same on this occasion. We will not let such violence deter us and we have members throughout the country willing to come and show support "
