We are aware of a recent animal welfare incident involving the death of a fox that appears to involve Hartpury students. We are investigating this as a matter of priority, working with the police and external agencies, including the RSPCA.
Hartpury prides itself on upholding the highest standards of welfare for all of our animals. We adhere to animal welfare legislation and follow sector best practice.
We will not tolerate any behaviour that is in breach of these standards and will take robust and appropriate action, including exclusion, against anyone implicated.
