We had two meets within half a mile of one another. The North Cotswold met at Kinetonhill farm and along with our friends Cirencester Illegal Huntwatch they were kept an eye on and many setts checked.
The Heythrop met at Condicote and early morning patrols found setts blocked the day before. They hunted a fox over the B4077 and one sab was surrounded at a blocked sett by pony club and some rather excitable adults. The behaviour of the children was exemplary but the adults were a bit odd to say the least accusing said sab of blocking setts!
On to land owned by Donnington Brewery who really should not associate with such criminal practices as illegal hunting and sett blocking their website is here. The third blocked sett of the day and as they has just hunted a fox towards Merryman’s brake you would have thought that they might be a bit contrite at being found out but oh no. Some histrioinics about footpaths and some chap from the Fernie being a bit silly.
They were around Han’s Brake alot and eventually hunted a fox over the A44 into Sezincoate and got all over the road in appalling weather conditions risking horse, hound and human.

Sabs from 3C were out again yesterday both sett surveying new areas and fending off a shooter in the old Gloucs badger cull zone.
