POLICE were called to a suspected illegal fox hunt near Shabbington on Thursday morning.

An eyewitness, who contacted the police, said: “There were a lot of pro-hunt supporters, and I’ve been told that they have killed two foxes.

“I think a lot of people will be very angry about this, given that it’s illegal and they’ve killed two foxes, it needs to be looked into.

“The police said they’re treating it as urgent.”

The witness spotted the hunt as she drove along Long Crendon Road between Long Crendon and Shabbington.

She said: “There were a large group of pro-hunt supporters, you could see it from the road.”
