Alert message sent 13/04/2017 12:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Badger found in suspicious circumstances, Grantham

We are appealing for information as it appears a badger has been unlawfully killed. The deceased animal was found in Colsterworth Road, Skillington on 12 April at 11.20am in suspicious circumstances.

It had a large rope tied around its front leg, had a large wound to its abdomen that could have been caused by a dog, and a cut across its head that may have been caused by a spade.  We are investigating as we believe this animal, which is a protected species, may have been baited.

Anyone who lives or walks in the area, and has information is urged to call PC Aaron Flint on 101 quoting incident 150 of 12 April.

Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
