Since the Badger Action Network launched last year, we have answered well over 300 emails from both individuals and grass roots organisations who are keen to find out how best they can help.
We found it interesting how many local landowners have contacted us to ask how they could stop unwanted cull operatives trespassing on their land. Our advice is to liaise closely with the police since armed trespass is a criminal offence. Another deterrent is to install hidden cameras.
With this year’s predicted rollout of the cull to new counties and the possibility of supplementary culling in West Somerset and West Gloucestershire, we’d urge any concerned landowner to contact us and we will be happy to help them further.
Right now, groups are getting out to check on setts and badger activity in previously culled zones as well the potential new zones. The good news is that even in the heart of cull zones, there are still signs of badger activity.
If you would like to join the effort to save our badgers, please find your local group here.
