LONDON (Web Desk) – A British animal rights activist risks her life to save a fox about to be killed by a hound and hunters, reported animal rights website The Dodo.

A video from 2012 has surfaced in which a woman sprints towards the fox as the hounds were about to slit the animal. She started screaming at the dogs to get them to stand back.

She throws her own body on the fox and brings the shaking animal into her arms. As the woman runs away with the fox, the hunters shout at her from their horses: “Leave it!”

Fox hunting is a bloody tradition in England that uses dogs to tear foxes limb from limb.
