Badgers Gassed in 400-year old sett

BBC - 3rd November 1999

Police are investigating the deaths of 15 badgers, killed when their 400-year-old sett in Essex was gassed.

The dead animals were found after farm workers noticed that the entrance to the sett at Fairstead Hall Farm, near Whitham, was blocked.

Police say the gassing was done deliberately, probably with sodium cyanide, although they are baffled as to a motive.
