Bloodsport fanatics are using the Facebook website to threaten opponents of the hunting ban. One wrote on the networking forum: “It really needs a bunch of ‘anti antis’ to go around and control/handle the scum. Hunting folk need to be more willing to give them some of their own medicine.”

Days later, the same person urged huntsmen to “have the hardcore crew move in and dish some beats if they step out of line!”

Tania McCrea-Steele, of the International Fund for Animal Welfare, said: “Those who use violence against hunt monitors should be aware that they will be prosecuted.”

Charlotte Fiander, from the Countryside Alliance said: “We do not condone the use of violence.”
