At one stage the whole of Lodge Road from almost the top of the Hill, to the bottom of St John’s corner and onto the Bungay/Halesworth Road was completely blocked by hunt supporters vehicles. They had just got out of their cars and headed onto the fields leaving them in the road.. This showed complete disrespect for other road users, and what the hell would have happened if Emergency vehicles had needed to get through. All this evidence will be going to various authorities who have ask for photographic evidence, now they have it. The police were called but refused to come out because of lack of staff. Well that’s a joke, because the week before they deployed 3 vehicles on the word of this hunt, and the officers did nothing all day but sit in their cars, and state ” I saw something, but don’t know what it was being chased.”
Unsurprisingly Bungay Town Council didn’t shut down the Boxing Day Hunt from holding their starting ceremony in the town centre, so it was down to the sabs to do once again what they do every weekend throughout the autumn and winter months: take direct action.
For a view from “the other side” check out this laughable article by hunt-loving Archant newspaper Bungay amd Beccles Journal.
