Twisted Firestarter: Anonymous "warns" Prodigy's Keith Flint after he admits going on a fox hunt

04 January 2016, 11:46 | Written by Laurence Day

Prodigy frontman Keith Flint has admitted to "riding with the local trail hunt", and now Anonymous are out to get him.

According to the Hunting Act, trail hunting doesn't involve killing animals. However, some critics believe that hunters use trail hunting as a cover-up for illegal hunts.

Flint relayed a message via the rave-rock band's Facebook page after rumours began circling of his involvement with foxhunting:

Message from Keef Flint: '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, so my conscience is clear, it wasn't my thing and I won't be going again.

As many onlookers have been quick to point out, this revelation is at odds with the anti-establishment, hedonistic rave/punk lifestyle that The Prodigy have been peddling since the '90s. Also, their last album had a fox at the centre of the marketing campaign/materials.
