The Prodigy's Keith Flint criticised for supposedly taking part in Fox Hunt

Keith Flint takes to Facebook to defend himself after hacking group Anonymous get involved in criticising him over his supposed involvement in fox hunt.

Keith Flint has taken to Facebook to defend allegations that he has taken part in a fox hunt. Criticism has been coming in from social media with Anonymous even getting involved by sending out a warning to Flint.

In reply to all the social media criticism and the warning by Anonymous Flint has come out and defended his actions by posting a response on Facebook stating; "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."

A user named AnonIntelGroup who is supposedly associated with the hacking group Anonymous posted a video on Youtube. The video which last’s just under three minutes warns Flint to give up fox hunting and told him he has one year or there will be consequences to his actions. In the video Anonymous state that they "once had a great deal of respect for you, we admired your art, your rage, your vision and your haircut ".

Flint enjoyed a very successful 2015 with The Prodigy; the release of new album The Day Is My Enemy saw them embark on a world tour. Speaking to the NME in April 2015 the three piece suggested that the recent album could be the final chapter in The Prodigy story suggesting that they could call an end to the band after what has been a very successful 25 years.
