Brixham farmer 'targeted by campaigners'
A FARMER who has been a strong advocate of the badger cull claims he has been targeted by animal rights campaigner vandals.
Richard Haddock, who owns the Churston Farm Shop on Brixham Road has been vocal about trial areas and culling badgers as a way to eradicate TB in cattle.
Last week however vandals targeted his farm shop and lorry and put up posters on his vehicle and gate.
The side of his lorry was also vandalised which Mr Haddock believes could cost him several hundred pounds to repair.

The poster depicted a badger standing up on its hind legs and drawing two pistols.
Mr Haddock said: "The message is clear. The badger is trying to shoot me. It is a threat.
"I'm not asking for the eradication of all badgers but to have a trial. How can we find an appropriate solution that is the most animal friendly and humane if we don't have any trial."
Police are investigating the incident.
