Proof positive that primitive man is alive and well in Thanet, with news that police chased and arrested five men for hunting a wild animal with dogs. (a Badger I'm guessing)
The police were called to a farm in Minster on Friday night after receiving reports that the hunt was taking place.
The men involved - and their dogs? - tried to escape but police caught up with them in a 4x4 vehicle. All five were given cautions.
Chief Inspector Mark Chambers said: "These arrests send out a clear message that the hunting of wild mammals with dogs is not acceptable."
Ed: I'm sure they will be devastated to learn that their behaviour is unnacceptable and will be shamed by their caution. I don't think so somehow. What is equally worrying is that a directed effort towards tormenting wild animals in this very brutal fashion is frequently reflected in display of violent anti-social behaviour elsewhere.
