Hunt allegedly killed fox
David Keane, police and crime commissioner for Cheshire, has promised to look into an incident in the Huxley area when a fox was allegedly killed by a hunt.
He said: “The constabulary is aware of the allegations and I will be seeking an overview of the investigation and any outcomes from those leading it. The acting chief constable is fully aware of my expectation that such incidents are thoroughly and robustly investigated.
“I would also like to remind Cheshire residents that following the independent review I commissioned into illegal hunting in Cheshire, I will be holding a scrutiny meeting in public next month to discuss the outcomes of this review and the subsequent action plan to ensure Cheshire Constabulary is upholding its responsibilities under the Hunting Act 2004.
“In the meantime, I would urge anyone who has evidence of any criminal activity relating to illegal hunting to contact Cheshire Police.”
