SIR – If you are out for a walk in the countryside around Worcester and witness illegal badger baiting, please contact the police immediately.

Over the last couple of weeks many of us have read about a terrible case of badger baiting.

Six men and a teenage boy dug out and killed two badgers from a sett on farmland.

Before the badgers were killed dogs played tug-of-war with one of the badgers.

Witnesses called the police and the men and a teenager were arrested a short time later. Please be vigilant. This barbaric and abhorrent behaviour must be stopped.
