IF you are out for a walk in the countryside around Oxford and witness illegal badger-baiting, then please contact the police immediately.

Over the past couple of weeks many of us have read about a terrible case of badger-baiting.

Six men and a teenage boy dug out and killed two badgers from a sett on farmland.

Before the badgers were killed, dogs played tug-of-war with one of the badgers.

Witnesses called the police and the men and teenager were arrested a short time later.

Please be vigilant. This barbaric and abhorrent behaviour must be stopped.
