Quantock Staghounds - a bit rattled by our presence are we? Stopped your killing spree? This unstable individual carriers a shotgun on his horse. WARNING -

Much like the laws that made fox hunting illegal 20 years ago, the hunts in Scotland still go out to hunt and kill foxes illegally even under the new law.

This will be something to consider if similar laws are eventually passed in the rest of the UK.

We cover many hundreds of miles stopping wildlife killers in their tracks. If you want to support our work, you can for the price of a coffee. We really appreciate your support.
