Buy & Sell newspaper has been asked to stop listing adverts for dogs that may be used in badger baiting. The call follows a Sunday Times report last month which revealed that some badger baiters are using the publication to advertise dogs used in the illegal activity.

In a letter to the company, ICABS stated: "By including such ads, Buy & Sell is, in some cases, unwittingly facilitating some of the country's worst animal cruelty."

Brought to their attention was an extract from the Times report which outlined how the sale of the dogs used in badger baiting "is organised over the internet, by word of mouth, and in Buy & Sell, a weekly newspaper that carries classified ads. In some cases, advertisements which offer Patterdale dogs described as 'working strain', are dogs that are being used for badger baiting."

The report referred to a man who placed an advertisement in Buy & Sell offering Patterdale puppies for sale. When approached by an undercover journalist, the man "spoke freely of his involvement in badger baiting, how he treated his terriers for the injuries they sustained in illegal fights, and how he often travelled to Co Meath to bait badgers with his friends."

He went on to admit digging out a badger sett and finding a nursing badger and her cubs. "They were only wee cubs and the dog killed one of them," he told the reporter.
