Huntmaster of Buccleuch hunt Adams sounds horn on farmland in the Scottish Borders.
Huntmaster of the Buccleuch hunt, Trevor Adams, sounds his horn as members of the hunt provide a fox control service on farmland near Ashkirk in the Scottish Borders, December 15, 2004. Adams was cleared on December 10, 2004 of deliberately using a pack of hounds to hunt foxes in breach of anti-hunting legislation, after claiming the hounds were used to "flush" out foxes so they could be shot. A ban on hunting with dogs introduced in Scotland in 2002 is due to be introduced in England and Wales in February 2005. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE.
