Badger snared and shot at Winslade, Hants
Badger snared and shot at Winslade, Hants

In July, 2019 we investigated a badger that was snared and shot in the South Downs National Park at Winslade, Hampshire. Police interviewed a gamekeeper under caution following our evidence, but the suspect was not prosecuted.

A number of our supporters wrote polite letters to the landowner, Viscount Lymington. 

We are pleased to say he has contacted NASC and states:

“Snaring is not allowed on our land and I deplore this cruel act”

The gamekeepers “do not remain in post as their employer is no longer the estate’s shoot tenant.”
