Hunt saboteurs are pelted with eggs and female protester has chunks of her hair RIPPED OUT as violence erupts between rival demonstrators during traditional Boxing Day event – Daily Mail
Violence at Atherstone Hunt Boxing Day Meet 2018 – Market Bosworth
Violence erupted both at the demonstration and later in the day as Atherstone Hunt supporters attacked both demonstrators and saboteurs. A member of the public was violently attacked by the hunt as her hair was grabbed and pulled by a regular hunt supporter. One hunt supporter grabbed one of the demonstrators banners with her teeth showing just how feral and out of control this hunt are. Hunt supporters were drinking alcohol all day, which raises questions regarding health and safety of this event.
West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs claim it was protesters who were the victims of the violence in Market Bosworth.
A spokesman said:
“Boxing Day is the biggest day in the hunting calendar. It is totally outdated for them to continue hunting, and totally barbaric.
“Of course it’s not acceptable for protesters to face violence just because they want to voice their disagreement with the hunt. But it’s not surprising.”
“If people are willing to be violent towards animals, it’s only a small step to being violent towards humans. One woman was injured after having her hair pulled out – but she’s okay now I believe.”
The Atherstone Hunt declined to comment on the allegations
