FOX CHASED AND KILLED BY THE ATHERSTONE HUNT14-11-15 Grendon Fields Farm Sabs saw the fox being chased closely by hounds, it stopped and looked to its left and then to its right and saw there was no escape. There were hounds either side of it, they caught it, dragged it to the floor and killed it. The rest of the pack were trying to get at it. Whipper-in Phil Durno got of his horse grabbed the dead body and handed it to the Huntsman of the Dove Valley Mink Hounds, Will Shaw who slung it over his horse and rode off with it. The hunt Started in Leicestershire and spent most of the day in Leicestershire crossing over into Warwickshire at the end of the day which is where the fox was killed. Over the past year we have consistently put out footage showing the Atherstone illegally hunting and chasing foxes. The police (specifically Leicestershire which is where most of the Atherstones hunting takes place) are aware of all the footage yet not only do they allow the Atherstone to continue hunting but they give the people who film this footage harassment notices at every opportunity with no evidence whatsoever. It is this lack of action that has allowed them to get away with hunting illegally and kill this fox today.(https://www.facebook.com/leicspolice/?fref=ts)(https://twitter.com/leicspoliceWarwickshire police have been informed and appear keen to investigate the incident. So we will wait to see what happens next…….https://www.facebook.com/warwickshirepolice/?fref=tsWe will be posting another video up of today's full events over the next few days which will show the hounds marking to ground in a badger sett, the hunt chasing a hare and sexist, anti social behaviour again from Atherstone hunt members.
