A HUNT based in Gloucestershire has been suspended after claims that a fox was buried alive.
The British Hound Sports Association has suspended the Cotswold Hunt, whose kennels are based at Ossage Farm near Cheltenham, for allegedly participating in illegal activity at the Miserden Estate between Stroud and Cirencester.
It is claimed that footage broadcast by Channel 4 News last night shows an illegal hunting practice known as "fox bagging".
