Ten arrested over badger baiting

26 April 2004 - BBC News

Ten people have been arrested by police in east Lancashire on suspicion of badger baiting.

Five RSPCA staff and eight officers from Lancashire Police made the arrests in Bracewell, near Barnoldswick, at around 0430 BST on Sunday.

The 10 men, three from Barnoldswick and seven from Wigan and Leigh, have all been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

The arrests follow a tip off from a member of the public.

Officers were told a group of men were planning to visit the area to carry out a deer hunt and badger digging.

The men were arrested on suspicion of causing suffering to animals and disturbing a badger sett, which are protected by law.
