A COUNTY hunt is being investigated by police.

The kennels of the South Herefordshire Hunt, which are based in Wormelow, are currently locked.

It is believed all horses and hounds have been moved elsewhere due to the ongoing police investigation.

The hunt refused to comment when contacted by the Hereford Times this morning.

West Mercia Police confirmed today a 37-year-old man from Hereford and a 27-year-old woman from Hereford were arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty.

The pair, who were arrested on May 28, have been released on bail until a date in August.
