VIDEO: Animal rights activist in hospital, following attack by man


A video has gone viral of an angry man attacking a woman in the UK, for protesting against a local hunt.

The animal rights activist has been left injured and in hospital after she was attacked by an angry man. The woman and her friend were in a field as part of the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs. As you can see in the video, posted on West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs Facebook page, the man rushes forward to the pair confronting them.

Soon you can see him shove her into the ditch, before slapping and pushing her again. One final push resulted in the lady falling face first on the ground. She can be heard in the video saying “I have just been assaulted” and claiming the man slapped her face.

The man is said to have been angry after the protesters had spent over two hours on the land, trying to disrupt a nearby hunt. The video does not show the man striking the woman, though picture evidence has been posted. Photos have surfaced online of the activist with blood on her face.

After the incident, under investigation by police, the woman was taken to Warwickshire Hospital for treatment. The video has already being viewed over 251 thousand times on Facebook. The incident is the second of it’s kind to occur in the UK in recent months, with an angry farmer carrying out a similar attack recently, as reported by us here.
