We use a number of tactics including direct-action to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront cruelty in the countryside.

We can be out 3-4 days a week during the hunting season to save hunted and persecuted wildlife from the hunters.

Bloodsports are cruel and barbaric and have no place in modern society.

The West Midlands has a long history of sabotaging hunting. The current incarnation of West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs can trace its roots back to Birmingham Hunt Saboteurs who joined other sab groups to sabotage hunts all over the country. Members of Birmingham Sabs then went on to form Coventry Hunt Saboteurs in order to focus on hunts more local to the Midlands. 2013 saw the start of the Badger Culls and with it a huge influx of new saboteurs. This increase in new members meant there were enough sabs to split to form a new separate sab group, Three Counties Hunt Saboteurs whilst Coventry Hunt Sabs changed their name to West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs to reflect its members and the hunts it was now sabbing.
