October 2016 – Investigation into illegal hunting by the Atherstone Hunt dropped
Leicestershire Police took no further action after the Atherstone Hunt were filmed killing a fox. Leicestershire Police are quoted as saying “It was closed due to a lack of evidence. The body of the fox was never surrendered to us” This is despite the body not actually being necessary as evidence and the fact that there was video footage of the incident. The main reason Leicestershire Police failed to recover the body of the fox was because at the time they were more concerned about false allegations that had been made by the Atherstone Hunt that a saboteur had stolen one of their hounds. This is Despite there being no evidence to suggest this had happened.
Atherstone Hunt 26-01-16 OsbastonANOTHER FOX KILLED BY ATHERSTONE HUNTOn Saturday the Atherstone Hunt spent all day chasing numerous foxes including through peoples back gardens whilst assaulting two of the people trying to save them. https://www.facebook.com/243223759156039/videos/787714478040295/Last month they were filmed chasing and killing a fox near Grendon Fields Farm, Grendon which the police are currently investigating https://www.facebook.com/243223759156039/videos/vb.243223759156039/755145201297223/?type=2&theaterToday the hunt killed another fox. A member of the hunt was off their horse near a hedge with the hounds near a stream. One of the hounds still had the recently killed fox in its mouth. The body was recovered by saboteurs and has been taken for an autopsy. Immediately after the kill Huntsman Stuart Barton carried on hunting as if nothing had happened, even hunting the hounds on when they got on to the scent of another fox. Whilst waiting for the police on the road near to the kill saboteurs noticed a member of the public with a hound that was limping. They said it had been hit by a car. On closer inspection the hound looked emaciated and unwell and made us wonder if the hounds have fully recovered from the kennel cough that they have been quarantined with for the past month. We haven't put all the footage from today online as it is currently being investigated by Leicestershire police.After Saturdays blatant and relentless hunting we asked how much do Leicestershire Police need to see before they take action to stop this hunt? Well now another fox has been killed and huntsman Stuart Barton shows no signs of stopping or caring. How many more foxes are Leicestershire police willing to let die before they take action? When officers did arrive they where the hunt where and we repeatedly asked if they would tell them to pack up in light of today's and Saturday's events. This didn't happen and the hunt carried on hunting.If people wish to donate to us please use the links below.Many thanks.Until next time WMHShttps://www.paypal.me/westmidlandhuntsabs http://gogetfunding.com/help-west-mids-sabs-keep-sabbing/
