Hunt Saboteurs Association News Release 2nd August 2020
We're delighted to hear that both the Ystrad Taf Fechan hunt in South Wales and Mr Elliott's Harriers in Staffordshire have folded.
After 40 years the Ystrad Taf Fechan have had their kennels sold out from underneath them and have failed to find a viable alternative that will allow them to continue. The hunt have been targeted by South Wales Hunt Sabs in recent seasons and we're delighted they've been a significant factor in the hunts demise.
Details are scarce about why Mr Elliott's, a private hare hunt from Staffordshire, has folded but the information has come from multiple sources and we're confident that another hunt has bitten the dust.
This Is Hunting UK, the Pro-hunt Facebook page, reported on the Ystrad Taf Fechan closure and said: “In these hugely unsettling and deeply worrying times for families and businesses across the Nation, where the hell do they think they are going with this one?
Lee moon, spokesperson for the Hunt Saboteurs Association, stated: “We’d just like to confirm to the pro-hunt community that we certainly are crowing about the closure of these hunts and will continue to crow every time a hunt fails. We have no sympathy for the people who have lost their jobs as they made their money from the suffering of animals. Whatever excuses the Countryside Alliance come up with, the stark reality is that hunting is an outdated, cruel sport, abhorred by the majority and is quite rightly dying out in the 21st Century. It’s just a matter of time before it’s finally consigned to the history books and listen how loudly we crow when that finally happens.”
