Uffington White Horse

Hill Figure


One of Oxfordshire's most famous landmarks defaced!

One of Oxfordshire's most famous landmarks - the Uffington White Horse has been defaced by Hunt activists.

A 19th century white horse hill figure in Yorkshire was also defaced.

Today's Oxford Mail reports that a spokesperson from the Real Countryside Alliance says: 'Some people in the country are getting very frustrated at the inaction. All we want is for ministers to take notice.
"Marches don't seem to be doing any good, although it's keeping the media focused on it.

The 374ft-long Bronze age image has had three white hounds and a rider added in biodegradable paint.

For my own part, I hope that the hounds of hell hunt down the miserable scumbags who think this is an acceptable way of getting their abhorant opinions in the press.
