The leaders of Prince Charles' favorite hunt resigned after animal rights campaigners produced a videotape showing the bloody killing of fox cubs. The secretly filmed video showed that a recent meet broke the rules of hunting by digging a fox cub out of its hole so that it could be torn apart by a pack of baying hounds. The rules of the Master of Foxhounds Assn. state that when a fox has gone to ground, it should be humanely killed before being given to the dogs. A spokesman for the Quorn Hunt in Leicestershire, central England, said the resignations of the hunt's chairman, Lord Crawshaw, and its four masters was accepted with regret.
