Call to Public to Protect Badgers

14 April 2006 - BBC News

Badger baiting in Lincolnshire can only be stamped out with the help of the public, police have said.

Officers are appealing for people to help the authorities by reporting any incidents - but are warning the perpetrators should not be confronted.

It comes as recent cases of badger baiting are investigated in the Market Rasen area.

Wildlife Crime Officer PC Nigel Lound called baiting "barbaric" and said it should be stopped.

He added: "The majority of people involved are criminals and they are not pleasant individuals and under no circumstances should they be approached by members of the public.

"But there are positive things we can do, the first one being reporting all sightings of live badgers and setts to the Lincolnshire badger group.

"And it's only by this sort of co-operation we can make sure this barbaric practice does not take place in Lincolnshire."
