Third investigation: Barlow Fox Hunt

HIT’s third undercover investigation exposes illegal badger trapping by the Master of the “prestigious” Barlow Fox Hunt, in the Peak District National Park.

This covert operation came amidst landowner applications for badger culling in Derbyshire, but before licenses were even granted, the Hunt Master appears to have been conducting his own private badger cull. See the full video report here.

The links between badger persecution and fox hunting have been exposed by our team of skilled, courageous investigators, who conducted incredibly close surveillance on the Hunt Master. The criminality inherent to fox hunting was shown to run right to the top of the hunting hierarchies.

Thankyou to all our supporters who have kept our team on the front line and helped make this operation possible.
