Despite a ban on fox hunting in Britain, there are still many hunts that go on, and still many foxes that are killed.
Hunters and animal welfare activists clash on many occasions and in the case of this video, one woman risked her safety to save a fox.
A group called Hunt Monitors was tracking the Old Berks Fox Hounds while a hunt was underway in 2012 when a young woman spotted a vixen being surrounded by a group of hounds. The dogs were about to maul the poor animal to death. Fortunately for the fox, her “guardian angel” was only a few feet away.
