Pair tried to kill badgers in sett near Holywell
Two men who attempted to injure and kill badgers from a sett in Flintshire have avoided a prison sentence.
Leighton Shiers, 19, and William Chrystal, 24, of Liverpool, pleaded guilty earlier this month.
They were arrested after being discovered by police at a field in Trelawnyd, near Holywell, last April.
Shiers and Chrystal were ordered to complete 160 hours of unpaid work and pay £300 costs each at Flintshire Magistrates' court on Tuesday.
Matthew Richards reports.
