He turned to acting in 1998, appearing in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, in which he played a thuggish debt collector.

Meanwhile, animal rights campaigners have said that the photo of the dead foxes shows "nothing less a massacre".

A photograph was posted on his Twitter account at the weekend of more than 100 dead foxes arranged in rows along with the suggestion that Jones had broken the record for shooting the animals.

Jones has responded to the outrage over his Twitter page, claiming that he was hacked.

Jones is a noted fan of hunting.

And Jones has now taken to Twitter to claim his account was hacked and he was not the one who sent the picture.

Philippa King, CEO of the League Against Cruel Sports told the Telegraph: "The extermination of such a large number of foxes can not be interpreted as simply dealing with a rogue fox problem or wildlife management".

Although the activity may be legal, there is no doubt it is unethical and likely totally unjustified - as fox populations are self-regulating.

"The joy expressed in the tweet highlights the true nature of this activity, which is wildlife for fun and has nothing to do with fox control".

Mr Jones later deleted his controversial tweet after animal lovers lashed out on the social media site.

Vinnie Jones poses with 18 dead rabbits. "Now has deleted this but too late!"

Apologising for the post, Jones wrote a series of tweets. After seeing this tweet I'd happily lamp him myself.

Jones' management has yet to respond to HuffPost UK's requests for comment.

The hard-man earlier this month told how he had a passion for hunting birds and wildlife.

"The night shooting of foxes is necessary to ensure that damage to game, wildlife and livestock is kept at acceptable levels".

"Lamping is probably my favorite [form of hunting]", he said in an interview, according to the Daily Mail. "I've spent a lot of money customising my Land Rover for lamping".

She said: "The extermination of such a large number of foxes can not be interpreted as simply dealing with a rogue fox problem or wildlife management".
