Metro- The film, taken by anti-hunt campaigners, was shot following the Atherstone Hunt in Ibstock, Leicestershire on Saturday.
Police are investigating the incident, which the Atherstone Hunt have described as ‘appalling’
A spokesperson from the group who filmed the footage told the Mirror: ‘It was completely shocking but the behaviour does not surprise me. A member of the hunt was there but does nothing about it and actually thought it was funny.
‘I thought it was disgraceful behaviour towards the dead animal. I was just gobsmacked and later reported it to the police. We think the video speaks for itself as to the mentality of the Atherstone Hunt.’
In a statement the Atherstone Hunt said they are ‘sickened and disgusted by the appalling behaviour of an individual with a dead bird at a meet of the hunt at Ibstock on Saturday 19th September 2015’.
Hey, uhh guys, it's just a fucking bird. Far be it for me to defend these kids, and I am not going to, but it's still just a dead fucking bird. Are the antics of these hooligans funny? No, not really, but they also aren't appalling or disgraceful. In fact, if we are going to throw a couple of adjectives at it I would say this video could appropriately be described as immature and annoying. I don't think there was a point in my life where I was picking up dead animals and simulating sodomy on them, because dead animals are gross, but I probably did a thing or two that could rival it's stupidity. I understand getting offended when someone holds up a lion's head or a bear's paw as a sign of their trophy kill, but birds is where I draw the line. Birds fly, they shit, and they die. That's just what they do. If some little schmuck wants to come through and put some dead, dirty goose wings on his back then I have no problem with it. You know why? Because it's a useless bird, not his grandmother's lifeless corpse. This kid isn't giving puppet shows with dead puppies. He's fucking with an animal that dies from flying into windows half the time. It's not like he is keeping it from a proper burial. If it wasn't being treated as a prop it would just be rotting in a park somewhere. Don't tell me this thing deserves to be treated with respect in death. It wasn't even respected in life. The only takeaway here is that the world is out one creature that can shit on me from above. As far as I am concerned, that's a win. Should these losers be swinging a goose's neck around like it's their cock? Probably not. Should one single person on the planet Earth let it ruin their day? Definitely not. If I were a police officer and I got a call to investigate this matter I would beat my own ass.
