this is a mirrored site put up in another country, if you wish to see the uk version that is being censored by the Secretary of State Owen “badger badger” Paterson, please go to:
www.badger-killers.co.uk where you can see this same site but without any of the contact details.
Everyone – This is you, and everyone else who’s opposed to the cull. We are not restricted by the guidelines of other organisations, we are able to organise against the cull on our own or in groups. This gives us the chance to support groups like the Badger Trust (see below) in their efforts to prevent the cull, as well as other actions – demonstrating, leafleting, etc. as well as actually being in the field during the cull. Check out the actions page for some ideas of what you could do, or come up with your own actions.
Badger Trust – The Badger Trust promote the protection and conservation of badgers and their setts. They’re in a well-regarded position and are the main group lobbying against the cull.
The Badger Trust are also responsible for the main legal challenges against the cull, as well as providing large amounts of information on why badgers are not to blame for bTB.
If you would like to call them please keep it legal, if you would like someone else to call them on your behalf or if you think any of these people need any particular service typing “request callback” into google will give you a big list of companies who would love to start doing some cold calling on your behalf. A list of farmers involved in the cull will be going up shortly.
The ‘secret’ syndicates behind the badger cull trials in Gloucestershire and Somerset have been identified and can now be revealed.
Both companies have been recently set up with the NFU HQ as their headquarters. ‘Gloscon’ for the Gloucestershire cull and ‘HNV Associates Ltd’ for the Somerset area. These are the ‘companies’ to which Natural England will be issuing licences to kill badgers. These are the people who will be organising the shooters and collecting the money from the farmers and are therefore responsible for the badger cull.

DEFRA – (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) – Defra are the government organisation responsible for legislation around animal welfare, the environment, farming, etc.

Natural England – On their website, Natural England say, “Our purpose is to protect and improve England’s natural environment and encourage people to enjoy and get involved in their surroundings”
Despite this, Natural England are responsible for issuing licenses for the badger cull. This means that if it’s decided that the cull goes ahead, they choose where and by whom the badgers are killed. Natural England chairman Poul Christensen is exposed in this guardian article along with a few others
“Christensen, a dairy farmer, sometimes seems to be more loyal to his industry than to conservation. The same goes for some of the other directors. Attending the meeting at which Christensen denounced his own staff was the NFU’s outgoing uplands farming spokesman, a large landowner called Will Cockbain. Where is he now? On the board of Natural England.”
