A hunt supporter rammed his van into a protester’s car before yelling ‘a torrent of sexist and misogynist verbal abuse’ at a woman activist.
The pro-hunting spectator, who has accepted a police caution, was following the Atherstone Hunt in Sutton Cheney, Leicestershire, when he turned on the saboteurs.
In disturbing footage shared on Facebook, the hunt is visible riding past as he hurls insults at the female protester from the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs, telling her to ‘f*** off back to Coventry’.
The thug also brands the woman a ‘b****’ and a ‘fat w****’ after pulling out of a field and colliding head on with the saboteurs’ vehicle.
But the group is claiming victory after revealing the stocky, flat cap-wearing yob must attend a victim awareness course at his own expense and pen a letter of apology to the victim after accepting a conditional caution from Leicestershire Police.
The group’s post reads: “On 29-11-16 whilst we were monitoring the activities of the the Atherstone Hunt at Sutton Cheney, one of the hunt’s supporters who had been watching the hunt decided to ram his car into our vehicle.
“He then jumped out and proceeded to shout a torrent of sexist and misogynist verbal abuse at a female sab.
“He can be seen raising his fist and indicates that he knows where she lives. The hunt can be seen riding past as he continues his tirade of shocking sexist language.”
The West Midlands Saboteurs added on Facebook: “The Atherstone Hunt and its supporters seem to have a real problem with women, over the past few years the women in our group have been subjected to numerous sexist and misogynist verbal abuse and have been physically attacked and bullied by men from the hunt.
“Hopefully this sends a message out to the Atherstone Hunt that this is not an acceptable way to talk to women and that their bigotry will not be tolerated by the police.”
A Leicestershire Police spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that a 59-year-old man has been given a conditional caution.”
