First we joined up with W Yorkshire Sabs and decided to pay a visit to the High Peak Harriers. We had received word that they had delayed their start due to the weather conditions, so parked up at their kennels and waited for them to move. It got to about 1.30 and with the conditions not any better plus the fact 2 sab van were waiting outside; they decided not to go out. Hounds were fed so we left knowing they wouldn’t be hunting with full bellies.
With the Meynell and South Staffs Hunt not far from us, we decided to head down to them and join up with Manchester Hunt Sabs Nottingham Hunt Saboteurs and Derby Huntsabs. On arrival sabs had just successfully rated hounds and ensured the escape of a fox.
We headed off to intercept the hunt. Once our sabs headed into the fields the hunt immediately became aggressive. A rider decided to ride down one of our sabs and the terriermen proceeded to start driving into sabs with their quads. For the rest of the day they threatened us and tried to intimidate us but we have seen it all before and it didn’t deter us. With sabs in every direction they turned, the hunt decided to call it a day and headed back to their meet at around 3.
A very successful day. Two hunts sabotaged and no kills.
