Footage of a calf being chased by a pack of hunt hounds has emerged across social media.
Nottingham Hunt Saboteurs shared a video of the incident in Derbyshire on its Facebook page.
‘In fear of its life’
On Wednesday (November 4th), Hounds of the High Peak Hunt were recorded “chasing a calf through several fields and forcing it to jump over dry stone walls in fear of its life”.
In the video, an individual can be heard saying: “Oh my God, look at this calf running for its life.”
“They are actually chasing a calf through a field. Are they on something and the calf is just running or are they actually in cry after the calf?”
Sabotaging all forms hunting
Media understands that Nottingham Hunt Saboteurs intends to forward the footage to police to see if any legal action can be taken.
Nottingham Hunt Sabs say they are committed to sabotaging all forms of hunting and other attacks on wildlife. This includes foxhunting, shooting, angling, badger culling, and more.
“With a growing understanding of hunting tactics, we aim to use to non-violent direct action to intervene whenever hunts chase any animal and ensure that they escape with their health and their lives.”
“Sometimes this requires us to use tools such as whips, horns, citronella spray, and gizmos to lead and control the pack of hounds.”
“Often, our mere presence is enough to deter the hunt, forcing them to change their plans and abandon chases that could result in deaths otherwise. Our impact is immeasurable.”
