Paul Myers, ex-master of the hunt deliberately rammed into a saboteurs van this Saturday (31.01.15).  

Saboteurs from Liverpool, Sheffield and Manchester paid a visit to the Airedale beagles on Saturday. Sabs had positioned themselves on either side of the kennels to ensure the hunt would not leave and start illegally hunting.

Around 11.30am a pickup truck towing a trailer full of hounds left the kennels. Paul Myers who was driving the pickup, decided he would repeatedly ram into Sheffield Saboteurs van. Luckily sabs inside the van were not injured and the van only received minor cosmetic damage. The pickup wasn’t so lucky and with the bumper hanging off, Mr Myers drove the 100 yards back to the kennels and waited for the police to arrive.

Overall 5 police cars attended the scene but felt it was not necessary to arrest Mr Myers. Video footage and photos of the incident will be handed into West Yorkshire police and we hope appropriate action will be taken.

Not fazed by the aggressive actions of the hunt, saboteurs stayed put outside the kennels for the rest of the day ensuring the Airedale Beagles would not be able to go out hunting.

About Liverpool Hunt Saboteurs

Hunting with hounds was banned in England & Wales in 2005, however most hunts continue much as they did before. The police rarely help enforce the Hunting Act, due to a combination of ignorance on hunting techniques and interpretation of the law, and bias towards those who hunt and against those who try to stop it. In theory hunting with hounds is a thing of the past but in practice countless animals are pursued and ripped to pieces by hunts in the UK every week. Liverpool hunt saboteurs have experience of using non-violent direct action tactics to save the lives of thousands of hunted animals every season. From the use of hunting horns and voice calls to call off hounds from the scent at foxhunts, to standing in front of shooting butts on grouse moors, to wading through rivers at minkhunts, wherever animals are being hunted for fun, hunt saboteurs will be there, protecting our wildlife from the "sportsmen" who get their kicks from killing.
