'Horrific' finds in suspected badger baiting case.

AN investigation is under way after a badger was found dead and a dog abandoned and injured on farmland, in a suspected badger baiting incident.

Residents from Ffordd Yr Ysgol in Flint found the female adult badger in a pool of blood near their home.

They also came across a bull breed cross lurcher, abandoned in the playing fields of Cornist Park Primary School.

The dog had injuries - including a tear to the ear, part of his nose missing, broken teeth and puncture wounds all over his body.

The dog has been named Flint after where he was found. He has now been taken to a vet for treatment. RSPCA inspector Anthony Joynes said: "The badger would have had an horrific death, and she was a female, so could well have young somewhere needing her care.

"The dog is also in a horrific state and needed urgent veterinary attention.

"He is a lovely animal, and I am sure he was forced by his owners to attack the badger in this way."
