Stay ALERT!Cage "set to trap" found and destroyed by pixies in Devon.
Let's be clear, the supplementary cull zones start in a couple of days time, so even if it was in a supplementary cull area it WOULD STILL BE ILLEGAL. But this wasn't a supplementary cull zone, so no traps should be down for months yet.
Thankfully, due to the lockdown, more people than ever are out and about and checking up on badger setts.
Make no mistake, the badger cull is Tory party policy and even though we've recorded and published multiple breaches of licence rules and regulations, none of the farmers or shooters have ever been prosecuted.
The badgers have only us, we will never stop trying our hardest to protect them. ... See MoreSee Less

Why it’s Monday again. So it’s #MeetTheCullDirector time once more. Today we visit the cull directors for Lime Environmental Ltd, Charles Stanbury and Alison Habberfield.
(Charles sold his farm in 2019 but remains a cull director)
Both have overseen killing of badgers around Taunton/Wellington area of Somerset for the last three years. Including the killing of badgers on the edge of a Somerset Wildlife Trust nature reserve where badgers were lured to their deaths in fields next to the reserve. There is a lot of pheasant shoots in this area too, which will come as no surprise.
