Six men affiliated with the Lamerton Foxhounds in Devon, near Okehampton, will stand trial, accused of illegally hunting a fox with hounds in contravention of the Hunting Act of 2004.

Defendants are Joint-Master George Moyse, huntsman David Lewis, whipper-in Steve Craddock, and terrier men Wayne Bartlett, Gilmore Lewis, and Stephen Mitchell. The six deny the charges.

This is another private prosecution brought to the courts by the League Against Cruel Sports (LACS). The evidence is based on film recordings made by LACS “investigative officers.”

Thanks Dennis! I wonder if it was dropped because of the ridiculous evidence given by a vet for the prosecution who said the fox cub was probably killed by a dog, because if a fox had killed it, the fox would have eaten it. What nonsense!
