Pictures of Beagles: The Nantucket-Treweryn and Hidden Meadows Hound Dog Packs
A beautiful day in the country, a pack of beagles chasing rabbits, and a bunch of locals dressed like Brits in hot pursuit By Michael Gaynor, Eli Meir Kaplan
Comments () | Published June 23, 2011
Beagling is an old English sport in which a pack of hounds is set loose to chase rabbits while unarmed “hunters” follow on foot. The beagles occasionally catch a rabbit, but the chase itself is the point. This photo shows huntsman Stephen Fox, a leader of the Nantucket-Treweryn Beagles pack, or club, with its dogs after a hunt with another club, Hidden Meadows Beagles. Says Fox: “Beagling is a chance to get outdoors, get some exercise, and see some beautiful country.”
