There's a popular misconception that Otter hunting was banned in
Britain during the mid-1970's.
In 1978 the Otter was made a protected species but mink hunters
attended the same meets with many of the same hounds year after year.
One of the most glaring affronts to the burgeoning animal rights
movement was the participation of clergy in bloodsports. The first three
photos are from a demo against the Master of the Courteney Tracey Otter
Hunt (and curate of St. Andrew's Church, Boscombe, nr. Salisbury) which
were taken by Mike Huskisson on September 26th, 1976.
