Stag hunters

found guilty of breaking ban

 

Thursday June 7, 2007

Guardian Unlimited

Steven Morris

 

A professional huntsman and a volunteer helper today became the first members of a stag hunt to be found guilty of breaking the ban on hunting wild mammals with dogs.

Richard Down, an employee of the Quantock Staghounds in Somerset, and Adrian Pillivant, a lorry driver who was acting as a volunteer "whipper-in", were each ordered to pay a 500 fine and 1,000 costs.

A judge decided that the pair had used two pairs of staghounds to pursue red deer for almost three hours and over 10 miles.

Down, 44, and Pillivant, 36, had argued that they were using the dogs to flush deer out to three marksman - which can be exempt under the Hunting Act 2004 if the animals are shot dead "as soon as possible". They also insisted that they were hunting to control the deer, which compete with livestock for food.

But district judge David Parsons concluded that the purpose of the hunt was "sport and recreation, preserving a way of life that the participants and the defendants are not prepared to give up".

The judge, sitting in Bristol, added that the pair were "disingenuous in attempting to deceive me into believing they were exempt hunting". After the ruling, members of the tightly knit staghunting community expressed dismay and shock.

They said they had taken advice from the police, lawyers and the pro-hunting group the Countryside Alliance, which supported the defendants' case, and believed that the Quantock Staghounds and the two other stag hunts that operate in Somerset and Devon were operating within the law.

A spokesman for the Countryside Alliance said that in the light of the convictions the three hunts would have to consider carefully how to work in future.

The League Against Cruel Sports, which brought the prosecution, said the convictions showed that hunts were continuing to break the ban, which came into force two and a half years ago, and that the law, heavily criticised when it came into force, could work.

The League brought the first successful case against a huntsman, fox hunter Tony Wright, last year. The appeal against his conviction will be heard in Devon next month. The first prosecution against a fox hunt led by the police and Crown Prosecution Service is due to take place in the autumn.

On the day Down and Pillivant were judged to have broken the ban, the Quantock Staghounds met at Crowcombe, near Taunton. At least 17 riders, including children, followed the hunt, and others watched from quad bikes and four-wheel vehicles.

As monitors from the League watched, groups of deer were flushed out on three occasions over two and three quarter hours, and six animals shot. Four dogs were used, two at a time.

Supporters of Down and Pillivant said what they did should be viewed as separate events - deer were flushed and killed as soon as possible. But the judge said: "This was a continual act of hunting over a period of two and three quarter hours ... some of the deer found at the first flush were present at the final flush ... the dogs may well have been deployed in relay to use fresh dogs to chase the deer faster and harder, to tire them quicker and to compensate for having to hunt with only two dogs."

November 29, 1899

The Boer war curtails our hunt balls

 

From the Guardian archive

 

Wednesday November 29, 1899

Guardian

 

It is some years since the clerk of the weather has treated fox-hunters so kindly during November.

For, given a pack of hounds and a good supply of foxes, sport is dependent on conditions of climate. It has been said of November that, unless a man returns home from hunting plentifully bespattered with mud - not the result of contact with mother earth - the chances are he has not enjoyed much sport; the suggestion being that at this time of the year scent lies best when the ground is fairly deep.

Something there may be in the idea, yet runs of the highest merit have occurred frequently during the present month, and, unless it be in woodland rides, the going is certainly not heavy.

On account of the Transvaal [Boer] war the usual hunt balls have been abandoned in many countries, and funds, or a goodly portion of them, will go to swell the subscriptions in aid of sufferers.

It is felt that public balls would be out of place while those who remain at home are watching anxiously for news of relations and friends. Some hunts, notably the Quorn, have started subscriptions for widows and orphans.

It seems that wire is gaining ground in the Cotswold country. A strong committee was appointed to deal with the matter. It should be remembered that the farmer uses wire mainly because it is cheap and convenient.

He has no desire to interfere with fox-hunting, and when the matter is represented to him in a proper way by persons he likes and respects, he will usually yield and at least take down his wire during the hunting season. This, however, must be done without cost to the farmer.

Many brilliant runs were recorded on Saturday, none better than by the North Cheshire - a pack, by the way, which has been rather fortunate of late in escaping disaster from passing trains.

Brereton was the meet. Hounds were thrown into Union Gorse. A fox was soon away, and, obligingly selecting a capital line of country, travelling with that long, stealthy gait which looks so easy and yet is fast enough.

Middlewich was passed, then the hunt swept on at a clinking pace in the direction of Coton. Only darkness deprived the pack of a well-earned meal, and when they were whipped off at the end of an hour and forty minutes, a ten-mile point had been reached.

On the same day I hear Sir Watkin Wynn's hounds showed good sport, sharp handling a brace of foxes, each of which ran far and fast before being pulled down. North-country packs have shared in the almost universal good sport.
