Hunting hounds killed on railway track

Yes, sadly some hounds have been killed after getting onto a running line.

Link here....ITV News - Hounds killed by train.

Must be a horrible thing for the driver to go through, got to blame the red coat brigade for their bloodthirsty so-called sport. Hope the Fox got away ok.

There is no mention of a fox. It is illegal to hunt a fox with dogs in the U.K. This was more likely to have been trail hunting where a scent is laid for the hounds to follow. At the end of the day 4 hounds have been killed, which is sad.

Agreed Stuart very sad indeed, but don't think because Fox hunting is banned that it doesn't go on anymore it does! so-called "Trail hunting" is an excuse for the "Tally Ho" brigade to get out there with the hounds, ask any hunt saboteur.

Yes not pleasant, but not as bad as when one of our Lady drivers hit 7 cows on a 100 mph line. She very sensibly told the signaller that NR had to send out a MOM (Mobile operations manager) to come and inspect the train, because she wasn't prepared to.

Just as well, because apparently the front of the train was in a terrible state (MOMs usually attend 'Person hit by a train' incidents, and have special training).

Cheers, John

When first reading the post, I had pondered a very smart fox, knowing the train timetable and escaping the hounds by darting across the tracks.
But, you have now commented that fox hunting no longer occurs, only lure hunting.
The lady driver hitting them cows was probably fortunate that her train didn't derail.
In 2008 a DB ICE hit sheep inside Landruecken tunnel and derailed.
The Deutschers bung crossovers inside long tunnels.
That crossover playing a part in the derailment when sheep got jammed under the Triebwagen.
Yes, I could imagine the pong from the mess.
Put you off eating steak or lamb for a while.
Here, cowcockies are responsible for maintaining their boundary fence adjoining the rail corridor.
Train crew were always required to compile a Casualty Report when ever snotting stock on the line.
Not sure what goes on these days under privatization.
Steve.
