Two hunt-supporting homes in Wales have had property sprayed with hunt saboteur groups’ initials ALF (Animal Liberation Front) and HRS (Hunt Retribution Squad) in a suspected animal rights attack.
Police have confirmed that Charlotte Vangersteegen-Drake and husband Peter of Llowes had two cars vandalised overnight on 5-6 December — Mrs Vangersteegen-Drake is a joint-master and hunt secretary of the Golden Valley hunt.
And Jeff and Wendy Poulton’s pick-up, at their property in Painscastle, received similar treatment on the same night. They are Golden Valley subscribers.
Chris Davies, joint-master of the Golden Valley, called for vigilance within all local hunts.
