Appeal For Witnesses To Fox Attack

Police in the Cotswolds are asking drivers who may have witnessed a fox being attacked by hunting hounds near Stow on the Wold to get in touch.

Reports received by police from members of the public indicate the animal was attacked by a group of hounds on the A429 between Moreton and Stow at around mid-day on Wednesday November 1.

Traffic in both directions is believed to have been halted as a result of the incident, which apparently came to an end when the fox ran away from the scene.

Anyone who witnessed this incident is asked to contact Cotswolds police on 0845 090 1234 quoting incident number 448 of November 1.
