Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE - CHAR­LOTTE BEALE

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.
