Moment huntsman beats horse with whip before bystander launches foul-mouthed tirade at gobsmacked activist

THIS is the shocking moment a huntsman beat his horse with a whip before a bystander launched into a foul-mouthed tirade at a gobsmacked activist.

An anti-hunt protester filmed a rider aggressively striking his horse with a riding crop, forcing it to recoil as it refused to cross a bridge in Broughton, Warwickshire.


As the shocked activist recorded the ordeal, an onlooker is seen screaming at her – with the group claiming "death threats" were issued.

The man can be seen marching over to her before saying: "You're a gobsh***. You've got a f***ing gob on you.

"You thinking pointing a f***ing camera in my face is going to do a f***ing thing?

"F**k off bitch, you just leave me alone. What have I done to you?

"What do you think your life is worth? Get that camera out of my f***ing face."

After being told he is being threatening, he screams at her: "I don't give a f**k. F**k off."

Other footage shows a fox being hunted by hounds, a horse being beaten with a crop and members of the hunt causing traffic chaos as they rode along the busy A4035.

The clip emerged a day after teacher Sarah Moulds was sacked for appearing to punch and kick a horse during a hunt in a video which caused national outrage.

A West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs spokesman said: "With Boxing Day the biggest date on the hunting calendar almost a week away, the Warwickshire Hunt have in this video provided a snapshot of what fox hunting is all about.

"To begin with one rider was filmed wacking his horse hard with his riding crop after it refused to walk over a bridge with him.

"Unfortunately this probably won't surprise anyone as we all know that fox hunters care little for their animals.

"When you go out abusing one animal, a fox, abusing other animals will become second nature.

"This is nothing new but this particular hunt supporter seemed very unstable, using misogynistic language, death threats and extremely aggressive behaviour."

A Warwickshire Hunt spokesperson said: "The Warwickshire Hunt was conducting a lawful day's hunting which has deliberately been portrayed inaccurately by anti-hunting activists.

"The individual filmed, who is not with the hunt, was passing by and while he stopped to watch the hunt he was then followed, filmed, targeted and provoked by individuals from a group that deliberately sabotages our lawful activities, which includes someone criminally convicted for fabricating evidence against a hunt.

"The hunt does not condone violence or threatening behaviour under any circumstances nor should its members have their personal privacy abused."
