Hunt Club, MFH Sued: Hound Attack Alleged

A lawsuit has been filed in Buck’s County against the Huntingdon Valley Hunt and Richard Harris, MFH by a Warwick, Pennsylvania couple. John and Judy Cox claim they were attacked on January 1 while walking their blind dog in Dark Hollow Park.

Hounds were hunting in the park at the time and came in contact with the plaintiffs. The woman was knocked down and claims that hounds bit her and her dog. The lawsuit charges the hunt with “reckless indifference to the rights of the Plaintiffs and others.” Harris was cited for “failure to control the dogs.”

In the wake of the incident, the township briefly curtailed foxhunting in the park, but has since allowed hunting to continue there.
