Animals  (tags: Badgers, Road Kill, Shooting, Death, Dorset )

- 981 days ago -
They were found dead by the side of the road by a member of the public. However, they clearly had gunshot wounds and had clearly been dumped there to make it look like roadkill.

“The law is very clear that badgers are a protected species and we would expect the police to treat these incidents seriously.
The RSPCA is reminding people they could be jailed if they illegally shoot badgers. The charity is urging anyone who suspects acts of cruelty taking place to come forward with information."
