Police investigate as residents watch drama unfold
APACK of foxhounds caused mayhem in a quiet street during a hunt meeting, according to furious residents.
Cheshire police are now investigating allegations that the animals were chasing a fox – which was found dead in a back garden.
Residents told of “pandemonium” when the pack of dogs came hurtling across a field and into Penningtons Lane, Macclesfield.
Edwina Church, 47, said her husband Kevin saw dogs which appeared to be chasing a fox which he then saw killed. She said: “It was horrific. “There was a stream of dogs running through our garden into next door. We had 15 of them jumping around in our garden. The dogs were frantic.”
Cheshire Police said on Facebook they are working with the RSPCA and specialist officers to investigate. Macclesfield MP David Rutley said he has contacted the Cheshire Forest Hunt to establish how the events occurred.
