A sickening footage has emerged on Youtube showing a young man pretending to have sex with a dead goose.
In the footage the man fox hunt steward, appears to make a sexual gesture using the dead goose, before draping the animal over his shoulders and flapping its wings to simulate a flying movement.
The film, taken by anti-hunt campaigners, was shot following the Atherstone Hunt in Ibstock, Leicestershire on Saturday.
According to Mirror UK, police are investigating the incident, which the Atherstone Hunt have described as ‘appalling’.
Speaking about the incident, a spokesperson from the group who filmed the footage said: “It was completely shocking but the behaviour does not surprise me. A member of the hunt was there but does nothing about it and actually thought it was funny.
“I thought it was disgraceful behaviour towards the dead animal. I was just gobsmacked and later reported it to the police. We think the video speaks for itself as to the mentality of the Atherstone Hunt.”
In a statement the Atherstone Hunt said they are ‘sickened and disgusted by the appalling behaviour of an individual with a dead bird at a meet of the hunt at Ibstock on Saturday, September 19, 2015.
“The individual concerned is not an employee or member of the hunt and has been informed by the hunt that he is not welcome to attend any hunt events in the future.”
