"On Sunday 16 May, incredible damage was caused to 6 very large, some very new, pheasant rearing pens in Gloucestershire. Damage is at a total of at least £8,000 pounds.

Huge holes were cut out of the mesh wire, poles and wooden structures were broken, snapped in half and ripped out the ground. Feeders and water containers were also destroyed. This will hit these scum hard as they prepare to get this years shooting birds out into the pens.

All 6 pens were in woodland that is also used by the government department DEFRA (Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) to kill badgers in cage traps.

We will continue to frequently damage property and equipment belonging to scum who allow and support DEFRA to return year after year to kill badgers.
