if you live in Cambridgeshire and found the police too busy to attend your call on the 23rd of December – it’s probably because NINETEEN Cambridgeshire police cars were sent to protect a fox hunt organised by Sir Philip Naylor-Leyland, 4th Baronet.
The police turned up in force and then proceeded to threaten the peaceful anti-hunt protesters with CS spray:
Cambridgeshire police seem to think their job is to protect the wealthy as they go about killing wildlife rather than investigate the robberies, muggings, break-ins and rapes that happen to the rest of us plebs.

HIT REPORT 23.12.2017 – FITZWILLIAM HUNT
CASTOR VILLAGE GREEN (from Milton Hall)
* FITZ CHRISTMAS EVE PRESTIGE MEET TOTALLY SABBED
* OVER 40 SABS FROM 9 SEPARATE GROUPS IN 5 VEHICLES
* 19 POLICE VEHICLES RESPONDED TO THE HUNT’S REPORTS OF ‘ACID SPRAYS’. NO ARRESTS MADE…
After picking up the hunt at their meet and greet in Castor village green, over forty sabs and five vehicles moved to surround the Fitzwilliam with their large field of riders (bolstered by pony club attendees for Christmas) as they hacked north into open farmland alongside the A47, west of Peterborough.
Sabs stayed with the hounds constantly from the off, and using classic voice distraction call and on occasion, the gizmo, the pack were not allowed to hunt at any time and only spoke briefly once.
With the hunt clearly rattled after having their showpiece Christmas meet ruined, the field of around 50 – 60 moved around searching for woods near Marholm to hold up (the Fitzwilliam don’t seem to realise that they aren’t supposed to be cubbing any more), but found sabs in front of them at every turn.
One fox was seen to safety by Norfolk/Suffolk, which hid behind haybales before making his escape quickly.
Hounds rolling on their back, horses bucking from boredom, and the master (Sir Philip Naylor Leyland, worth £175m but clearly hasn’t spent much of that on riding lessons) almost thrown from his horse at one point, this was clearly one of the Fitzwilliam’s least exciting hunting trips, and after they made a call to police to deal with the antis, they retreated and hid in nearby Milton Park.
The drama then picked up, with 19 police vehicles dashing at dangerously high speed to attend. Police were officious and antagonising to sabs and did not want to hear of any complaints of known violent supporters in attendance.
So many police cars attended in fact, that two had a collision outside the entrance to Milton Park… what a thoroughly efficient use of public resources.
Sabs covertly entered the Milton Estate and confirmed that the field were leaving the meet just before 3pm…
No wildlife harmed today, although some police officers pride may have been!
