On the other side of the pond hunt saboteurs wage war against legal hunters.
These hunters had enough.
Witness the hunters who forced these hunt saboteurs to take a swim.
What happens when hunt saboteurs mess with the wrong hunters? Better not corner us because hunters bite back.
That is exactly what happened to this hunt over in the United Kingdom and the video shared by Countryside Capers on Facebook. Hunt saboteurs (otherwise known as anti-hunters here in the U.S.) decided to try to disrupt this legal hunt. They verbally and physically harass the hunters. Well when you are riding on the back of a large horse you are an immense target that can push back. Cornered by a deep water filled ditch the trespassers take a nice cold swim to escape.
Like the old saying goes “mess with the bull you’ll get the horn” these hunt saboteurs learned the hard way. Hopefully this lesson in manners will keep them away for good. Hats off to the hunters for keeping cool heads during this uncalled for attack on a legal hunt. Hunters are the true conservationists and we flip the bill for wildlife restoration and upkeep of wild places.
