The BBC have announced this morning that the culls will be starting early September, we think it will be earlier, maybe this Bank Holiday Monday!
West Dorset is a new zone so we will have the two zones this year, as North Dorset will be culled for the second time.
If you are able to help in the zones please contact us on 07557 229273, if you are not able to help walking on patrols, there may be other ways you could still help!
Starting August 29th 2016 (Bank Holiday Monday) the Dorset Badger Patrols are meeting at 7:30-8pm EVERY NIGHT while the cull lasts, at the following meeting points:
[UPDATE] PLEASE NOTE: Meetings are 7:30-8pm EVERY NIGHT (7 days a week) until Sunday 11th September 2016 only. As of Monday 12th September 2016 meetings will be earlier at 7pm-7:30pm due to the evenings getting darker earlier.
Shaftesbury – Tesco’s car park, SP7 8PF
Dorchester – Tesco’s car park, DT1 2RY
Bridport – ONLY by prior arrangement with DBBW so please do not just turn up, contact us first!
(7 days a week) until Sunday 11th September 2016.
N.B. As of Monday 12th September 2016 meetings will be earlier at 7pm-7:30pm (due to the evenings getting darker earlier)
We are also raising funds for fuel to help our patrollers – if you wish to donate please go to https://dorsetbandb.org/donate
The government have again decided to ignore all the scientists and experts that have stated that culling is not the way to stop Bovine TB, and in fact could make the problem even worse (as badgers flee cull zones) so we will be showing our protest in a peaceful manner again.
If we are close to cull operators they cannot shoot – so our presence is important, and we can save lives!
We thank you all for your support.
Here we go again…
