A member of North Shropshire Hunt stabbed an anti-hunting activist on January 15, sending him to the hospital for treatment for concussion and back pain.

West Mercia Police said they were aware of the incident and were “conducting an investigation to find out if any criminal activity occurred”.

Is fox hunting illegal?

The incident in Whitchurch, Shropshire, is one of a number of recent incidents of violence involving hunting groups.

A police officer was injured while trying to seize the mobile phone of a member of the Leicestershire manhunt recently, and footage has emerged from a hunt in Nottinghamshire, which appears to show a manhunt The fox was overrun by a pack of hounds.

While hunting with hounds was banned by the Hunting Act of 2004, many hunts continue to operate as what they describe as “track hunting”.

According to the hunting community, trail hunts involve an artificial trail set before the hunt begins to go out, with the hunt then following that trail during the day, to mimic real hunting activity.

However, anti-hunting activists have long claimed that the majority of poachers that are still active use this claim to further their illegal hunting practices.

Last year, a leaked video from a webinar showed Mark Hankinson, Director of the Fox Hound Hound, saying that ‘reasonable’ track hunting could be used as a ‘smoke screen’. for illegal hunting.

Hankinson was later found guilty of encouraging and assisting people to evade the fox hunting ban. Video shows the moment the hunter rode straight into the anti-hunting activist house in a fiery encounter
