I am a hunt saboteur.

Hunt sabbing, it's the strangest thing I've ever been a part of.

It's the best thing I've ever been a part of. But the concept of it is so strange

I didn't know about hunt sabbing, I didn’t know what hunt sabbing was. I knew of fox hunting and I knew I was fully against it. I thought at the time I was the only one that was against fox hunting. I didn't know there was anyone else who was against it on the level that I was and then I got told about the hunt sabs. And it was instantaneous I knew I wanted to be a part of them. I just had to be a hunt sab. Whatever it meant, whatever it entailed, to physically be there in the field and put myself in-between these people.

Are hunt saboteurs effective?

Hunt sabs are effective.

I don't care what anyone says, they are effective.

I've been a hunt sab for three years, for three seasons.

We've only witnessed two kills, and as horrible as those situations were, if we weren't there

They would kill week in week out.

If hunt sabs weren't sabbing, hunts would kill all the time. They are effective, they're crucial, they're the only people physically putting themselves in between the hunts and their targets.

If hunt sabs weren't in the field, foxes would be killed week in week out, it's undeniable.
