Hunt saboteurs Association Press Release 19th March 2016
Members of North East Hunt Sabs were attacked today by masked terrier men from the Middleton Hunt who met at Skirpenbeck near York. It was a cowardly attack on a female driver and their passenger.
The men used spades to smash the windscreen and a side window whilst a red coat from the hunt blocked the road. Excellent driving enabled the sabs to escape before further damage was caused. The sabs waited over an hour for the police before finally accepting they couldn’t be bothered to turn up and investigate the crime. They will be reporting it to local police tomorrow.
Lee Moon, Press spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “Last week it was the Ross Harriers and this week it is the Middleton hunt smashing windows on hunt saboteurs vehicles. Add to that the broken neck suffered by a League against cruel sports employee at the hands of the Belvoir hunt in Leicestershire and it becomes apparent that these are dark days in the British countryside. Violent hunt thugs are acting with impunity knowing that the police, if not actively pro-hunt, will certainly turn a blind eye to violence from the powerful hunting community. Fortunately hunt sabs are a tough bunch who know they are supported by the majority of the population and we become even more determined to stop the hunts killing when faced with violence.”
