A tale of two fox cubs

One morning last month, some shady characters were observed by a member of public entering a wood complete with spades, terriers and guns. Initially the person who called this in thought the intention had been badger baiting. Within a day we had heard about this and having found other setts persecuted in the area we […]

26/12/16 – Minehead Harriers

Boxing Day 2016 and rather than do what we would have preferred (stay home with our families and friends enjoying festivities) we couldn’t, knowing that 250 + hunts across the country would be out looking for foxes and other animals to kill.
