A PASSENGER has spoken of the moment a bus came to a halt as a pack of hounds chased a fox into a main road in Carmarthen before killing it.

Police are investigating the incident on the A40 near Abergwili at around 10.30am on Saturday and are believed to be reviewing CCTV footage.

One witness told investigators from the League Against Cruel Sports about what she saw. "The dogs seemed to be attacking and surrounding something that was covering them in blood and then I could just make out the shape of the fox," she said.

She said the attack lasted for more than five minutes and it is also believed one of the dogs was hit by a car.

"The dogs dispersed gradually until it was just the remains of the fox and the hound's body left," added the passenger.

    Neathboy I never mentioned soldiers. Remember that soldiers go where their government decides.

    Lets hope those who are responsible are caught and convicted. Jail would be the best option for there blood lovers. Or even better send them out to Afghanistan, i'm sure the Taliban would make easy work of them
