A couple who found their cat dead after a hunt passed next to their land claim he was ripped to pieces by hounds.

Margaret and Andrew Wheatley (both 50), of Wood Lane, Horsley Woodhouse, found six- year-old Felix’s remains in a thicket on December 12… The South Notts Hunt went through the area three days earlier.

Only his tail and back legs were recovered and fur was dotted around the area.

Anne Jepson, secretary of the South Notts Hunt claimed, “It would be unusual for hounds to target a cat because they were trained to chase only foxes”.
