A SHOCKING video appears to show an illegal fox hunt being carried out in Wiltshire.
In the phone footage revealed by ITV News, people - alleged to be members of the Avon Vale Hunt - dig up a wild den in the countryside and retrieve a fox from it for their hounds to chase after.
While the humans turn away towards the barking dogs, who are preparing to set upon the helpless animal, another fox runs out of the ground and makes its escape across the grassy plain.
This surprise seems to delight the person filming, who laughs and points out that there's been "a brace", which prompts cheers and excitement from the other 'hunters'.
