one of Britain's best-known fox hunts (= groups of people who hunted foxes, until it was made illegal in the UK), established in Leicestershire in 1698. In 1991 a film was secretly made showing a fox being torn apart by the Quorn's hounds (= dogs trained to hunt), which shocked many people when it was shown on television. note at field sports
