Baiting Badger baiting involves torturing badgers until death and is an underground ‘bloodsport’ across the UK.

Both the badgers and dogs suffer inconceivably painful injuries. Small terrier-type dogs are sent down setts to locate badgers and hold them at bay whilst baiters dig down. Once exposed, the badgers are dragged from their setts and either baited there and then by a pack of savagely-trained dogs, or they are sold to underground baiting rings, earning someone in excess of £500.

Lamping for badgers is another favoured pastime, with perpetrators choosing to stalk foraging badgers late at night before unleashing their dogs in terrifying and gruesome combat.

One way or another, the badgers always die. In addition to their horrific injuries from being viciously attacked by dogs, they are also often deliberately wounded by the baiters in order to guarantee a longer fight by breaking their jaw, teeth or even a foot.

If the dogs survive, rather than receiving veterinary treatment for their open gashes, ripped ears and lips, and any other unimaginable injuries, they are stitched up by their owners without pain relief or anaesthetic; or they are killed.

  • Badger baiting was first made illegal in 1835 under the Cruelty to Animals Act.
  • Badgers have since been granted further protection by the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.
