On Sunday evening the ex-footballer Vinnie Jones posted a hugely provocative image of over 100 dead foxes, accompanied by the caption ‘A real night lamping #foxes anyone beat this?’
Since 2004 fox hunting has been outlawed as a result of the Hunting Act but registered hunts up and down the country continue to flout the law. The photo has understandably been met with outrage by animal lovers and it has since been taken down by Jones.
In light of the widespread criticsm that Jones received on social media, he took back to the platform today and stated: ‘I have just woke to see these tweets with fox pics , this is a hack ive never seen this pic in my life and did NOT twwet it is a HACK !!!!!’
