ON February 28, 2019, we carried a report of a court case headlined ‘Gamekeeper snared after badger trapped’ involving a man who killed a badger at a ‘stink pit’ on Denton Moor.

The court charges said the incident happened ‘at High Denton Farm’, as we reported.

The owners of the farm have asked us to point out that the incident in fact happened on Denton Moor, but not on land that is part of the farm, which has now been confirmed to the Gazette & Observer by North Yorkshire Police.

The information was published on court papers and used in good faith.

We are happy to correct the record.
