On the 17th September 2015 terrierman for the Cottesmore Hunt, Dean Jones, pleaded guilty to interfering with a badger sett, contrary to Section 3 of the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.

He was caught on camera by League Investigators blocking up a badger sett in advance of a Cottesmore Hunt meeting.

We wonder why a Cottesmore Hunt employee would be required to block up a badger sett just before the hunt set off... given that it is illegal for hunts to chase foxes.

Sett-blocking by terriermen is one of the lesser-known but still very nasty aspects of hunting, involving cruelty not only to foxes but also badgers and working dogs.

This successful prosecution demonstrates that it’s not only those that wear red coats that break the law but many other individuals connected to hunting.
