BBC News - 3rd April 2000

The internet is being used to attract spectators to watch badger-baiting in the countryside, a BBC Wales investigative programme has revealed.

The animals were caught in Carmarthenshire, Cardiganshire and Pembrokeshire in West Wales and then sold in London and further afield.

An internet website advertising badger-baiting holidays has also been uncovered.

Badger-baiting is a bloodthirsty sport which was outlawed in the 19th century.
