Badger abuse


These photographs are taken from video film taken by Graham Hall during an undercover investigation of badger abuse that he carried out for the News of the World and the League Against Cruel Sports. Graham Hall 
did this under conditions of extreme danger.

The pictures show country sports enthusiasts playing with badgers near Builth Wells in 1990. At the end three badgers were killed. The badgers were attacked and savaged by a variety of dogs, they were stabbed and they were shot.

These people believe they should have the freedom to abuse our wildlife in this fashion.

These badger abusers, two from Manchester and three from Builth Wells knowingly broke the law. The League Against Cruel Sports subsequently prosecuted the men and they were jailed.

There are plenty of other country sports enthusiasts who boasted that when Parliament changed the law to end the likes of staghunting, foxhunting and hare coursing they would not obey it. They claimed to be proud to go to prison rather than give up their cruel sports.

These people believe they should have the freedom to abuse our wildlife in this fashion.

If you suspect that badger abuse such as this is taking place near you please contact the police, the RSPCA, or ourselves. There should be no liberty to inflict appalling cruelty such as this upon our wildlife.
