South Devon Hunt

feel free to copy and paste this image to help get the word out that South Devon are on our site.

Update: on the 1st of May 2021, information was published about the South Devon killing hounds that were surplus to requirement. You can read about it here.

The South Devon hunt were struggling financially before coronavirus hit, they are now in quite a comfortable financial position according to the spreadsheet a £10,000 grant last year and Teignbridge council giving them £6,000 this year, this recent email sent round to hunt subscribers reveals the latest grant. You can see the spreadsheet here that includes the £10k covid grant from last year.

The committee members emails are below, please do copy and paste this list and to an email and ask them politely why they think they are entitled to profit from corona virus:,,,,,,,,,,

These meeting minutes from October last year again highlight how this hunt has profited from coronavirus.

Lastly we have an extraordinary listing, this is the hunt masters own notes on all the landowners/farmers, we have hidden peoples phone numbers who appear to be anti hunt, however we would still advice everyone on this list who is reading this to make a complaint to the ICO as your data has not been protected by the South Devon Hunt and it may even be the case they are holding data on you illegally.

We notice that Riverford Organics are listed on here and as you can see from above Louise Watson has recently retired as the master of this hunt, her brother Guy Watson runs Riverford Organic, who were also previously highlighted as being involved in the badger cull.

Perhaps more surprising was the mention of Dartmoor National Park and Maurice Retalick being on the committee, we then googled the committee and found out that Maurice has left. However, we found two other people on the list and maybe this is why Dartmoor National Park isn’t responding to emails about their licencing of trail hunting? Please do spend a minute emailing the committee

The two committee members who allow the South Devon Hunt on their land are William Dracup

the other one is Naomi Oakley, who is a government advisor:
