Eton College 'illegal hare hunt' captured on film

A charity claims it has filmed an illegal hare hunt in North Yorkshire involving Eton College's beagles.

The League Against Cruel Sports said its undercover investigators captured a hare being pursued by the school's dogs at a hunt at Aldby Park in Buttercrambe last October.

The footage shows a hare fleeing from dogs in a field.

North Yorkshire Police confirmed it was investigating video footage of an alleged "illegal hunt activity".

Eton College said it took its legal responsibilities extremely seriously.
