Three held in badger baiting raid

11 October, 2004 - BBC News

Three men have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in badger baiting, police have said.

Ten dogs were also confiscated as 26 police and RSPCA officers raided a house in Whitworth, Lancashire.

A 63-year-old man from the town, a 43-year-old man from Nelson, Lancashire and a 57-year-old from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, were taken into custody.

They are suspected of animal cruelty but were released on police bail pending further inquiries.

The dogs have been taken to an undisclosed location.

This is the third recent operation by police targeting alleged badger baiting.

Six other people are currently facing court proceedings.

The RSPCA has urged anyone with information on the growing problem of wildlife crime to get in touch.
