I may be forgiven for thinking that I live in the “Wild West” not the South West. I refer to the lawless behaviour reported in 14th March edition of the BVM of The Blackmore & Sparkford Vale Hunt running through the streets of Stalbridge.
This appalling incident is a timely reminder of why we must never relax the Hunting Ban with dogs. The spectacle of a creature being chased for its life by a pack of dogs, horses, quad bikes and 4x4s is not often witnessed by town dwellers.
This grotesque “circus” would rather be unseen in the countryside.
