Video shows men 'causing suffering' to fox during hunt

Two men have been convicted of causing unnecessary suffering to a fox during a New Year's Day hunt.

Ian Parkinson, 65, of Lower Road, Haddenham, and Mark Vincent, 53, of Kimblewick, Aylesbury were found guilty after a trial at Oxford Magistrates' Court.

A video showed one of them pushing a drainage rod into a manmade tunnel while the other pulls out a fox from the other side.

It was filmed covertly near Thame in Oxfordshire by the Hunt Saboteurs' Association.
