Who are we?

Established in 2016, Cheshire Hunt Saboteurs are a group of autonomous individuals dedicated to saving the lives of hunted and persecuted animals in Cheshire and beyond.


Working with other groups in Cheshire and from bordering counties, Cheshire Hunt Sabs use non-violent direct action to investigate, confront and expose the illegal and immoral slaughter of innocent wildlife, with the objective of putting an end the systematic slaughter of wildlife that has no place in the 21st century. We do this by educating the public, investigation, documentation and, where appropriate, take action to help enforce laws and conventions designated to protect our country's wildlife.

Funding is secured mainly from individual donors. Our biggest expense, without a doubt, is fuel - to give you an idea of just how much, in 2019 during the 6-week Badger Cull period in Cheshire, we spent around £1,000 alone on fuel.

Cheshire Hunt Sabs has a steady growing support base with lots of new volunteers and because of this, we are able to have sabs at 1 of the 4 illegal fox hunts we have in Cheshire for all hunt days, as well as having a continuous presence in the cull zone during the 6-week badger cull.
