Christopher Richardson and Charles Clark have been charged under the 2004 Hunting Act for allegedly allowing their pack of hunting hounds to chase and kill a fox in East Yorkshire.
The charges have come after a police investigation in January relating to a hunting meet on New Year's Eve in 2019.
At the time Humberside Police said that "enquiries are being carried out after a report was received from a member of the public that a fox had been killed by dogs, believed to be a part of a hunt on New Year's Eve in Driffield."
"Officers from the wildlife crime team attended the Hempholme area around 12:50pm on the day"
Both suspects are due to appear court on August the 27th.
At the time the East Yorkshire Coast Hunt Sabs were posting to their Facebook page, they said "They've just killed a fox, sabs have retrieved the body but terrier men are trying to take it off them!"
They also posted a report a few days after the incident, including video seemingly taken from the phone of one of their group.
