Police are hunting for three men, who shot a badger with a paint ball gun in Hertfordshire.
Officers say they were seen dragging a badger into woods at Northcott Hill National Trust car park in Berkhamsted. Loud bangs were then heard, before the men returned to their vehicle and drove off.
The badger was found dead shortly afterwards by members of the public.
