I saw a report that a hunt-supporter was killed(accidently) in England. Had to do with hunt-moniters were using a gyrocopter to keep a eye on hunts; hunt supporters claimed the craft was scaring the horses. Apparently, this fellow went to have words with those using the gyrocopter and he was struck by a rotor and killed.

Can anyone get a confirm on this?


Although I despise hunting I would not wish this on my worst enemy.


I have none. Wait I have all! \:D/

Just peeked over at the ALF site. Yep, they're commenting on this event. Not saying anything I didn't expect, though.

I have to wonder: things have been so quiet around this event. Is this common in U.K major law cases?

Decapitation by helicopter is cool, but don't mention the white men in coloured faces that run up the streets of jam licking from their elbows!

Any updates on this? I'd love to hear the gyro-pilots take on what happened.

I know that this is a totally non sequitur statement -- a suitable reason for expulsion in the not too distant past; perhaps even the present -- but this happened near Stratford-upon-Avon where Shakespeare was born.

This is no way remarkable or ironic, I just thought I'd mention that 'ole billy might have roamed over this particular field. How times have changed.



Not really irrelevant xxmag as in his day old willie wouldn't need to worry about some anti hunter buzzing his head OFF with a gyro-copter as the Troupe were out shooting pheasants or making fun of the Aristocrats in a Mid Summer Nights Dream..
