Farmers Guardian last week reported on the post, which showed a map of farms and encouraged activists to descend on them.

Countryside Alliance (CA) chief executive Tim Bonner thanked those who had reported the post to the social media giant.

“By working together, we can protect rural people and their businesses from these threats.”

But he added game farmers were still ‘living in fear’ and they were working with the police to tackle harassment and incitement.

 

“The police have reacted quickly to investigate those game farms that have been attacked as a result of this map, and we will ensure that they continue to treat the threats being made online seriously,” he added.
