Away from the Boxing Day parades, hundreds of foxes were killed out of sight of the public. This was just one such incident.

WARNING GRAPHIC.

Shocking footage filmed by Devon hunt sabs has shown a pack of hounds savagely killing a fox.

Devon County Hunt Saboteurs say the footage was captured during the Eggesford Hunt at Place Farm, on the edge of Okehampton on December 26.

Sabs have alleged the fox was killed in front of them and the video shows how they tried to get the hounds off the fox.
