27th January 2020 – Ledbury Hunt

We had the pleasure of being joined by both Mendip Hunt Saboteurs and members of Hunt Saboteurs Ireland.

As predicted the first draw was Egg’s Tump and our friends from the other groups were inland ready to assist any fox needing help to get away from the hounds. The hunt were not there long and soon whizzed up to Hayes Coppice, drew blank and then did pick up a scent in New covert.

There was a quick mooch around some hedgerows then off to second horse at Underhill farm and hunt Berrow wood.

The owner of the land, Edward Phillipson-Stow, who also happens to be a joint master of the Ledbury, got a little bit cross about sabs trying to stop them from hunting foxes.

Whilst foot sabs were busy up the hill, a fox ran down through Berrow churchyard and the sab looking after the car stopped the pack from pursuing the fox by spraying citronella across where he had run.

Pleased to report no blocked setts found and they hacked home to the kennels at 15.30.
