RSPCA facing hunt questions
9:30am Monday 14th January 2013 in Countywide
THE RSPCA is to meet the UK’s charity watchdog over concerns about its prosecution of Chipping Norton’s Heythrop Hunt.
The charity said it was reported to the Charity Commission by the Countryside Alliance over its action.
The hunt, Julian Barnfield and Richard Sumner admitted 12 charges of unlawful hunting with dogs at Oxford Magistrates’ Court last month.
Calie Rydings, of the RSPCA, said the Alliance reported the charity over “concerns about the prosecution”.
The Countryside Alliance was not available for comment.
