Punish Man Accused of Forcing Badgers and Dogs to Fight to the Death

Target: Llandudno Magistrates Court

Goal: Prosecute fox hunt master allegedly involved in badger baiting to the full extent of the law.

Badger baiting is a sport in which dogs attack and kill a badger; it has been illegal in the UK since 1803. David Thomas, a master of a fox hunt, has been exposed for alleged badger baiting. Thomas reportedly forced the terrified badger to fight, outnumbered, against dogs at his farm while other men watched for fun. Mike Nicholas, a member of the League Against Cruel Sports, said: “Badger baiting is a cruel sport we have long suspected to be organized by those engaged in illegal hunting.”

Badger baiting is especially cruel because in its natural environment, the badger is a quiet and docile animal. It is only when exposed to a threat that it will fight, using its dangerous bite and formidable claws to defend itself. Thus, badger baiting not only injures the animal itself but also the reputation of the badger, making them more susceptible to harm from fearful humans. In addition, while badger baiting usually ends with the death of the badger, the dogs themselves are usually severely injured, making badger baiting a sport that is cruel to two animals at once.

Video of Thomas’ farm reportedly reveals pipes designed to hold badgers captive, without means of escape, while dogs attack them. After a judge saw video, Thomas was convicted of causing unnecessary suffering to a badger in addition to six other animal welfare offences. He will go to trial in February. Sign this petition to urge the Llandudno Magistrates Court to prosecute Thomas to the full extent of the law.


To the Judges at The Llandudno Magistrates Court,

After a judge viewed a video that revealed special pipes on David Thomas’ farm property used in the illegal sport of badger baiting, Thomas was convicted and will face the court for trial in February.

Badger baiting has not only been illegal in the UK since 1803, but it is also an incredibly cruel sport that exposes two different animals to risk of injury and death. The badgers themselves are made to fight for their lives, disturbing their normally peaceful disposition. The dogs that are involved in badger baiting are usually severely injured by the defending badger. David Thomas was allegedly badger baiting on his property for fun and invited other men over to watch for fun. I urge you to prosecute Thomas to the full extent of the law so that it is made abundantly clear that the practice of badger baiting will not be tolerated.
