Badger sett disturbance investigated

11th May 2003 - BBC News

An attempt to disturb a badger set is being investigated by police.

A spokeswoman for Bedfordshire Police said officers were looking for people who put oil-soaked rags near the entrance of a badger set towards the end of last week.

The incident happened at a badger set in the graveyard of All Saints Church, Renhold, north Bedfordshire.

The spokeswoman said there was clearly an attempt to drive the badgers away.

She said this would constitute a criminal offence punishable by up to six months in prison or a fine.

Wildlife officer, Police Constable Martin Anstee, who is investigating the case, said he would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area.
