Grave concerns for Red

At the peak of the autumn stag hunting season, the League expressed grave concerns for the future of ‘Red’, one of the nine estimated adult red deer stags left on the Quantock Hills, fearing that he could be the next victim of the local Quantock Staghounds hunt after hunt supporters were heard saying that if they couldn't find a stag to hunt on the hills, they would come after him.

Red is one of the last remaining adult stags in the Quantock Hills and is currently being protected on land which the League Against Cruel Sports owns the sporting rights – where no hunting can take place. View our latest footage of Red below.
