Another “accident”

The Selby Times reported last week on an incident in which the Bramham and Badsworth Hunt “lost control” of their hounds and had an “accident” whereby their hounds pursued a fox through a nature reserve. According to Steve Clark, the Countryside Alliance’s northern apparatchik, it took the huntsmen five to ten minutes to get the hounds under control.

The simple fact is that if a huntsman is so inexperienced and ineffective he shouldn’t be in control of hounds. But the bigger question is this: how long will Clark remain in his job after giving an interview in which he didn’t slag off the Hunting Act?
