Fortunately he was overheard by an independent witness, who called the police, and he will now appear in court on November 12th.
Lee Moon, spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “ The pro-hunt lobby always like to say that we only care about animals, however, the Hunt Saboteurs Association has a long history of being involved in anti-fascist campaigning and it continues to be one of our core values. It is the hunters who abuse both humans and animals”

The Cotswold Vale hunt today attacked 3 people, one of them a woman in her sixties, during their final hunting day of the season.
The first attack involved a motorist who they claimed had hit one of their hounds on the B4213 near Apperley, Gloucestershire. One of the hunt terrier men punched him in the face despite witnesses saying he had not hit the animal. Later in the day they attacked a mother and son who were unhappy that the hunt were trespassing on their land. A group of twelve men kicked the son to the ground and then attacked his mother when she tried to help him.
Hunt saboteurs who witnessed the attack called the police and an ambulance. One member of the hunt has been arrested and another is being sought by the police.
A hunt saboteur was attacked by hunt supporters whilst monitoring the Coniston hunt yesterday. The hunt who were having their final meet of the season at their kennels near Ambleside had already illegally killed a fox before the attack occurred according to walkers who said they saw the kill.
Three saboteurs were set upon by a group of 15 hunt supporters armed with sticks. One of them was left with stick marks to his back and a serious eye injury as the attackers tried to throw him down a ravine. An ambulance was called to treat him but couldn't reach him as it was deliberately held up by hunt supporters vehicles who hurled abuse at the paramedics. Police were called and are investigating the incident.
Lee Moon, spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs association, stated: “We see the calibre of these people that not only do they illegally kill foxes and seriously harm anyone who tries to stop them, they will even stoop as low as hindering and abusing paramedics whose only concern is helping the injured. We strongly urge Cumbria Police to investigate this incident and bring the guilty parties to justice.”
