‘Hunt should not be taking hounds out if they have no control’ says saboteurs group – Banbury Guardian
‘Warwickshire Hunt should not be taking hounds out if they have no control’ says saboteurs group after pack ran amok through village – The Leamington Courier
The Warwickshire Hunt were hunting a fox behind houses in Horley near Banbury. The hounds then rampaged through people’s front and back gardens upsetting many of the local residents who wanted to know why there was a pack of hounds running rampant all over their garden. The Hunts Stewards seemed more intent on harassing sabs rather than dealing with the hounds.
A spokesperson for the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs said: “It seems that wherever the Warwickshire Hunt go they seem to cause complete chaos they are constantly upsetting and distressing the local residents.
“This is not the first time the Warwickshire Hunt hounds have rampaged through locals’ front and back gardens and unfortunately it’s unlikely to be the last.
“You would have to seriously question why if they are doing nothing wrong that their hounds always seem to end up all over the place.
“If the Warwickshire Hunt put as much time and effort in to controlling their hounds as they do to harassing and abusing saboteurs then these incidents may not happen. As it stands however the Warwickshire Hunt shouldn’t be taking their hounds out into the countryside as they clearly have no control over them.”
