Four men working for the Duddon Valley Fox Control Society have admitted hunting a wild mammal with a dog, contrary to Section 1 of the Hunting Act 2004, after evidence was passed on to Cumbria police by the League Against Cruel Sports. The four offenders admitted to unlawfully hunting foxes with dogs on 17th March 2013 at Broughton Moor in Cumbria, land where they had been granted permission by the Forestry Commission to carry out legal fox control on specified dates, subject to certain conditions. Philip Harvey, Peter James Coward, Andrew Mitchel and Edward Kevin Benson were each served official police cautions.
