The Prodigy’s Keith Flint responds to fox hunting rumours

Following reports in The Daily Mail on Friday that Keith Flint had taken up fox hunting, The Prodigy frontman has admitted to riding out on a trail hunt, but asserted that no animals were harmed and that he will not partake in the banned sport again.

A source speaking to the newspaper stated that Flint "keeps his horses with one of the bigwigs on the local Essex hunt, who lives just up the road from the pub [that Flint owns]. His enthusiasm for the sport is the talk of Essex hunting circles."

The story sparked an outcry, with many fans viewing the activity as at odds with The Prodigy's anti-establishment message.

Hacktivist group Anonymous issued a warning to Flint for "rubbing shoulders with Tory criminals whilst out fox hunting" in a video uploaded online.

A Guy Fawkes-mask wearing member announces "it has come to our attention that Keith has a fetish for murdering animals," before displaying an image of a deer that had been shot with an arrow and stating "Keith killed a deer, and now Anonymous will politically kill Keith. Sit tight Keith it's going to be a bumpy ride."

Now Flint has responded to the allegation in a Facebook status on the group's page, writing: "In regards to a story going around about me right now - yes I live in Essex and have a couple of horses. I went riding with the local trail hunt, it was a ride out and NO ANIMALS WERE HUNTED OR KILLED."

"My conscience is clear, it wasn't my thing and I won't be going again."
