ANIMAL activists have caused almost $90,000 damage to a British dairy farm.
The vaderlism occured after the owner publicly backed a pilot badger cull in a bid to tackle tuberculosis in cattle.
Stewart Thomas, of Old Cleeve, Somerset, was left to pick up the bill after two suspected arson attacks damaged his calf-rearing shed and his milk was deliberately contaminated last month.
Mr Thomas advocated for a cull in the badger population, which has been linked to the transmission of tuberculosis, after his herd tested positive for bovine tuberculosis for the first time earlier this year. The badger is not native to England.
Though no animal rights organisation has claimed responsibility, local authorities believe renegade animal rights activists are to blame.
