A footage shows the moment a group of hunt saboteurs was chased by a tractor driver who tipped manure over their van. The members of the Lincoln Hunt Saboteurs, a group taking action against blood sports in Lincolnshire, are filmed being pursued by a tractor with a bucket full of manure in Hixon, Staffordshire.
The protesters were attacked as they monitored the activities of the Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt. The driver tips the bucket, sending manure cascading onto the roof and through the open window of the van.
The group said they had been attacked because they ‘ruined the hunt supporters’ day’. Members had been ‘intimidated’ in the past by having dead foxes left on their doorsteps, they added. The incident has been reported to the police.
