We’ve just received yet another shocking report of hunt brutality, and I want to share it with everyone on this blog as a reminder of the true nature of hunters and their ilk. Behind their carefully constructed public personas, many hunters really are little more than thugs.
Alerted by the sound of a hound screaming, one of our supporters looked across to the yard of the local hunt (I’m afraid I can’t mention the name of the hunt here) to find a hunter viciously beating a hound with rubber piping. He then picked the bleeding animal high up above his head and flung it back down to the ground. The distressed and injured dog was then finally able to drag itself to safety.
Yet further evidence, if any were needed, that some hunters simply couldn’t give a toss about animal welfare. Hunt hounds are tremendously loyal and affectionate dogs, and yet they are often treated with nothing but contempt by their owners. Sadly, this kind of incident is all too common.
