Man charged with beating badgers

29 September 2008 - BBC News

A man has been accused of snaring six badgers and beating them to death with a blunt instrument. Anthony Rogers, 58, of Breconside Farm, Moffat, faced nine charges at Dumfries Sheriff Court in connection with the deaths of the animals. It is alleged in six of the charges that between 1 January and 4 April he snared and killed the badgers at Crockett Wood on the farm.

The case was continued without plea for three weeks. The majority of the charges were brought under the Protection of Badgers Act with others under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
