Two hunters have pleaded not guilty to illegally hunting deer in Somerset.
Richard Downs and Adrian Pullivant were represented by their lawyer at Taunton Deane Magistrates' Court on Thursday, accused of breaching the Hunting Act.
The pair, both members of the Quantock Stag Hounds and from Bagborough, Somerset, are charged with hunting deer with dogs.
The case, which was brought by the League Against Cruel Sports, was adjourned until November.
The breach of the Act was alleged to have happened on 16 February at Longstone Hill, near Holford, Somerset.
Mr Downs and Mr Pullivant are both on bail.
