Hunt sabs banned from es­tate

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - NEWS -

Eight hunt sabo­teurs have been banned from tres­pass­ing on the Mil­ton Hall es­tate in Cam­bridgeshire.

Sir Philip Nay­lor­ley­land of the Fitzwilliam hunt se­cured tem­po­rary in­junc­tions fol­low­ing re­ports of in­creas­ing vi­o­lence be­tween the sabo­teurs and hunt fol­low­ers.

Mr Jus­tice Freed­man said that at a full trial it was “more likely than not” that the sabo­teurs would have been dis­cov­ered tres­pass­ing. In his opin­ion there was a “real and im­mi­nent risk” they would en­ter Sir Philip’s land.

In Oc­to­ber the Fitzwilliam hunt ob­tained an in­terim injunction against an­i­mal rights ac­tivist David Blenk­in­sop who, in 2002, was jailed for his role in a fire-bomb cam­paign against a meat fac­tory and Hunt­ing­don Life Sciences.

The hunt said that it had taken le­gal ac­tion “in re­spect of is­sues re­lat­ing to tres­pass on land, ha­rass­ment and other in­ter­fer­ence with law­ful ac­tiv­i­ties”.
