Anti-blood sports campaigners captured footage of hounds chasing after a terrified fox cub – shaming a hunt previously supported by Tory MP Andrea Leadsom.
The senior Conservative politician has been a long-time support of the Grafton Hunt – who’s bloodthirsty pack of hounds were seen racing after the defenseless animal.
Following the release of the controversial footage, hunt members could now face an investigation over the footage in which they appear to engage in the illegal activity.

The blood sport ban was brought in to stop the use of dogs running down and tearing apart foxes in a sport followed in rural Britain for hundreds of years.
Now, Hunt members could face a police investigation over the footage in which they appear to flout the ban.
The footage was filmed last Saturday and captured riders of the hunt in Northamptonshire who seemingly failed to call off the dogs after they picked up the baby fox’s scent.

Tory MP Mrs Leadsom, MP for South Northamptonshire and a former Secretary of State for the Environment, has been a vocal supporter of the local hunt for years.
Mrs Leadsom, who in the days following Brexit was a front runner for the Tory leadership position, previously attended their annual ball and meetings in constituency.
In an online post – deleted before running against Theresa May during the leadership contest – she wrote: ‘Hunting is alive and well, and so it should be… The case for repealing The Act is, in my opinion, proven.’
But last night she declined to comment on whether she would withdraw support for the hunt.
