Sting of the Day: Four Jailed for Barbaric Fox Killing

Four men who filmed a dog  brutally killing a fox as they  stood by and encouraged it  have been sentenced to prison.

The sickening video, described  by a judge as ‘barbaric and medieval in its wickedness’, was  filmed on land adjacent to Brookfield Golf Club in Hankelow, near  Nantwich, on February 3 last  year.

At Crewe Magistrates Court on  Monday, John Daly, 30, of Breeze  Hill in Liverpool; Reece Welsh, 22,  of Sunbourne Road, Liverpool; Ryan Kennedy, 24, of Townsend Avenue in Liverpool; and Daniel  Ratchford, 29, of St Wilfreds Road,  Wigan, were sentenced after all  pleading guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to the dog and  also to interfering with badger  setts.
