Against Animal Cruelty are being joined by Brian May's SAVE ME campaign,
a site dedicated to defending the hunting act. They will be putting out
an appeal on their site for donations towards reward money being offered
for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for torturing
this fox cub to death.
have already pledged £250, and that's just the start!
Found a dead fox cub on the edge of the Hiraethog forest today, with orange
nylon rope tied in a knot around one her back legs. Her other back leg had
been torn off - there was just a bit of jagged upper leg bone jutting down
from her lower body. I believe this poor animal was used for baiting young
hounds to become more vicious and so track and savage fully grown foxes
to death. She was then dumped in the forest down a ditch on top of bramble
and dried grasses. It was the smell of decay that gave away her whereabouts.
This cub was obviously well fed by somebody before she was trapped/dug out,
then abused, presumably by being swung around on the rope and mutilated
by dogs. You could see she must have been very beautiful, not the thin scrawny
types usually found in a forest area.
poor girl was definitely tortured to death for the purpose of encouraging
hounds/dogs to rip their victims apart I cannot begin to image what this
poor young animal went through before she died of her injuries. She must
have been terrified too! The people who did this are evil and sick cowardly
thugs. If anyone knows who did this cruel and terrible thing, I hope they
will do the decent thing and contact the police. These sick people need
to be caught and fast. I will jpeg a photo for you Monday evening. I hope
you can use this story, if only to get this out to the public at large.
If nothing else this poor animal deserves for her story to be heard. You
never know, the evil culprits might be exposed and somebody might inform
on them. I live in hope!!! Have been back to the scene today - Monday -
and met the RSPCA there. Police have promised they will also be investigating
this awful crime.
