A former gamekeeper has been jailed for sixteen weeks for filming a fox, which had its mouth bound and was being held down by the neck, being attacked by two dogs.

Stephen Metcalfe, 32, of West Burton, North Yorks told the police “I didn’t think it was wrong – it’s just a dog killing a fox. It’s vermin”, and refused to name the two friends he’d filmed torturing the fox. He was also banned from keeping dogs for ten years. The case was brought by the RSPCA.
