A SOUTH Wales badger baiter was indefinitely banned from owning dogs, after evidence of his violent hobby was captured on camera.

Christian Latcham, 23, from Tonypandy, was today given a suspended five month sentence at Rhondda Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to two charges of two charges under the Animal Welfare Act and six charges under the Badger Act.

The court heard how, on being arrested in 2009 for a seperate offence, Latcham had conspicuously tried to hide his mobile phone from officers.

When the police inspected the phone they found a number of gruseome images saved on it.

Geraint Richards, prosecuting, handed a number of the images over to the ruling magistrates and described them.

He said: “One of the photos depicts the defendant holding a dead badger aloft.

“His clothes and a black terrier are covered in blood.

“Another two of the photographs show a severed badger’s head.”

Clive Rees, defending, said the defendant lacked empathy and had limited social skills.

He said: “He has been unable to put himself in the place of the animals he was dealing with and to think and see through the things he was doing.”

Chairman of the bench, Mike Hanley, said the violent nature of Latcham’s crimes had made it difficult for the magistrates to impose a suitable punishment.

He said: “My colleagues and I are absolutely appalled a the evidence brought before us today.

“These were deliberate and unprovoked actions which speak of unspeakable cruelty.”

Latcham was also told he would have to serve 250 hours unpaid work and pay £1,000 costs.

  1. ‘250 hours unpaid work and pay £1,000 costs’ – FOR FUCKS SAKE, IS THIS ALL THIS SAD FUCKING EXCUSE FOR A PERSON GETS, SHAME ON THE MAGISTRATES.

  2. What scum this shit of a person is, community service for murdering badgers is just disgracefull, was the judge one of the hunting brigade????I hope I never come across this cretin because I will get a shovel and slice his head off. This evil nasty sadistic bastard should have gone to prison for a very long time, I believe at the moment badgers are a protected species, if this is so then he was really breaking the law in a bad way. Rot in hell you nasty scumbag.
