A JACKSDALE man is staging an agonisng vigil for his dog which disappeared down a badger sett last week.
David Coope was walking the small Patterdale-Jack Russell cross called Bobby in High Holborn Woods, just off the Codnor Industrial Estate, on Thursday, December 29, when he disappeared down the sett. Heartbroken David, 27, who has been assisted by the RSPCA, said: “It’s the not knowing if he’s managed to get out or if he’s still alive.”
David had to wait until Tuesday to get permission from Natural England, to probe the sett. He is now concerned that Bobby should emerge when no-one is around and stray on the road.
