Storming Sherborne Castle

On February 10th 2018, the Blackmore and Sparkford Vale Hunt (BSV) met at Sherborne Castle. They went on to pursue and kill a fox, in front of several witnesses.

AAF began a campaign immediately. We contacted the Castle, asking them to explain why they were condoning this illegal activity. We asked everyone we knew to email the Castle and complain. We left reviews on Sherborne Castle’s Facebook page, telling people  what happened. We posted in Sherborne News and Views and started a debate about the Castle’s involvement. We contacted the local paper, and it became front page news.

We visited Sherborne on the Wednesday following the kill and made certain that everybody knew what had happened. While there, we rang the Castle and asked them to come and speak to us. They did not.  Again, we found ourselves in the news.

Sherborne Castle, however, has not given any sort of a respone at all. They have remained completely silent, not even acknowledging the many emails they received.

Hence the petition. AAF has now begun petition demanding that Sherborn Castle stop hosting hunt meets. The petition is both on line and on paper.  We have taken it to Sherborne, Yeovil and Salisbury and intend on taking it with us wherever we go. It has been very well received and we have almost 2000 signatures so far.

Please sign the petition. You can find it here:
