“What the f***, we’ve been rammed” – Footage shows hunt saboteurs being smashed into

SHOCKING footage shows supporters of a hunting group ramming hunt saboteurs with a Toyota Land Cruiser.

A large Toyota can be seen smashing into the side of the saboteurs black Subaru Forester.

Shortly after, they then reverse and drive head on into the car of the saboteurs filming.

Occupants of the Toyota can be seen wearing balaclavas and camouflage clothing, as they drive off, with the driver putting his middle finger up to the camera filming.

The footage was taken on Saturday by Manchester Hunt Saboteurs, near Goldhill Farm, Edingley, Nottinghamshire.

They subsequently posted the video to their Facebook page, where it has racked up more than 90,000 views

The clip begins with the dark blue Toyota Land Cruiser turning onto the road that the saboteurs are parked in with their vehicle.

As the Toyota approaches, it does not seem to have their license plates visible, and overtakes the saboteurs.

The next part of the clip appears to show the hunt supporters in the Toyota following the saboteurs through a village, and then later on attempt to block them off head on.

Following this, the saboteurs can be seen parked up at the side of the road, with their black Subaru Forester in front of the vehicle they are filming from.

Off camera a voice on the radio orders the police to be called.

The Toyota land cruiser, with occupants wearing balaclavas and camouflage clothing, is parked perpendicular to the vehicles on a dirt track.

After a car passes, the Toyota drives directly into the side of the Subaru.

Off camera, voices can be heard saying: “What the f***?”

A man says: “Are you filming that?”

Another male voice responds: “Yeah.”

A voice on a radio can be heard saying: “Get the coppers here right now. We’ve just been rammed. Right now, right now.”

Occupants of the Toyota can be seen wearing balaclavas and camouflage clothing.

The Toyota then reverses and turns to the saboteurs in the vehicle filming, driving into them head on, causing a collision.

They then reverse and drive off, giving the middle finger, as one of the saboteurs responds with his own two-fingered gesture.

Facebook users were shocked by the tactics of the hunt supporters, some calling for more action from the police.

Yvette N Carlos Dean wrote: “Are the police going to stand by until a murder is committed?”

Darren Evans commented: “If the Sabs would have rammed the scum’s car I bet the police would have been there in droves.”

Michael Walker said: “All this because they want to kill wildlife. Sick people indeed.”

Facebook users were shocked by the tactics of the hunt supporters.

James Clark added: “Yet another blatantly corrupt police force ignoring dangerous driving from the hunt fraternity. This country is sick to the core.”

However, there were a minority of users who supported the actions of the hunt supporters.

Janice Kerr remarked: “About time you got what you deserve. Might have helped them with my vehicle if I’d been there.”
