Reopen Hartpury College Animal Killing Cases

The following text is what I have already reported to the police. "My reason for reporting this incident is due to Police failing to investigate this incident fully. The subject is Animal abuse and killing of a fox cub by Hartpury College students. My issue is that police have not dealt with this incident appropriately within the rules of the law. Police have said that "The fox had been struck in a collision and the student, who is training to be a gamekeeper, acted to dispatch the animal to end its suffering,". Although the caption posted with the video was "Got the fucker" which doesn't sound like an heroic act to end it's suffering. Also it is illegal to carry an offensive weapon in public, and in the video it clearly shows the girl carrying a knife and ending this innocent animals life. The animal is clearly suffering, they could've done the right thing and taken it (or even reported it) to the nearest vet, these are medically untrained individuals who contributed to the suffering of this animal in its last moments, rather than "Ending its suffering", if what these students were doing was to benefit the animal then I don't see why they wouldn't give it the appropriate medical attention it needs rather than to record the video, stamp on the animal, and take it into their own incompetent hands to use an offensive weapon to end this animals life. It has been said that "Students at the college say the deaths were part of a competition to kill the largest animal - and post a photo on social media". This is not the only case that has been brought to public attention and legal action needs to be taken against them."
