Alistair Robinson, a terrierman for the Ullswater Foxhounds, was found guilty in Penrith Magistrate’s court of breaching Section 1 of the Hunting Act. Video evidence captured by League Against Cruel Sports observers shows Robinson digging out the fox from underground and then beating it to death on 26 October 2009. He then tried to hide the carcass in a dry stone wall where it was later retrieved. Robinson was fined £250 and ordered to pay £900 in costs.
