The estate manager for the Holnicote Estate gives a licence to the Minehead harriers to hunt on the Holnicote Estate in Exmoor, which has one of the biggest nature reserves in the country Dunkery and Horner Wood

The Minehead Harriers are a harrier pack which means that their hounds will be trained to kill fox's as well as hares

The National Trust gives them a licence to have unrestricted access  to the estate without any monitoring or agreed meets. This hunt can currently go into the nature reserve at 5 am and cub hunt with permission from the National trust

The National Trust have refused the offer of monitoring these hunts

 The Minehead Harriers have already been prosecuted for illegal hunting n 2008

Despite repeated claims by The National Trust that they "do not allow illegal hunting" the evidence strongly says that they do.

The National Trust themselves disrupted the Minehead harriers during a dig out and trying to put a terrier onto a fox. 

The national Trust then banned their own hunt

Despite significant and serious breaches from this harrier pack (not a drag pack you may notice) the National Trust then amazed the UK by giving this hunt a licence to hunt which "follows an artificial trail"

And this hunt was given a licence to hunt once again , you can read the Minehead harriers new "code of conduct" here


The Uk are now expected to believe that this hunt is lawfully hunting following an artificial trail after they have been caught red handed digging out and torturing fox's


Please sign this petition to try and put a stop to the lies and deceit by this "charity"
