Field Sports Channel

A school in England has cancelled an event with a local hunt after children received death threats from antis. The Leadon Vale Basset Hounds were due to make their annual visit to the Elms School in Herefordshire to show the children trailhunting.

The school uses the meet as an opportunity to educate the children about hunting and the polarising debate around the issue, allowing them to make informed decisions. The school postponed the day after an online campaign by violent animal rights activists.
