IF you are walking in the Lancashire countryside and witness illegal badger-baiting, please contact the police immediately.

In recent weeks we 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.

Please be vigilant. This barbaric and abhorrent behaviour must be stopped.
