Hunt sabs from across the country have shut down a number of driven grouse shoots on the first day of the season – the so-called Glorious Twelfth.
Today at Wrexham Magistrates Court the ex-Wynnstay huntsman Christopher Woodward pleaded guilty to interfering with a badger sett contrary to the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.
Illegal hunting, road chaos, and trespass run rife in the hunting world, but police forces and local councils – with the help of hunt sabs – are increasingly using a new tool to combat this anti-social behaviour: the Community Protection Notice (CPN).

The HSA has a longstanding tradition of sabbing the beginning of the grouse shooting season.
In 2022, a gamekeeper in Berrington near Shrewsbury was caught on camera placing poison-laced pheasant carcasses near a release pen.
Today, East Herts sabs can confirm that the newly amalgamated Puckeridge & Essex Union Hunt has been served with a Community Protection Notice (CPN) by Herts Police.
