Facebook has removed a post publicising details of game farms in the UK after farmers and rural groups called for it to be taken down.
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.
“Rural businesses and livelihoods have enough challenges to contend with without having to deal with intimidation and potential attacks from extremists,” said Mr Bonner.
“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.
