It is now confirmed that Natural England have issued the licences for culling badgers in many areas as we expected.
Please if you can help on patrols in West Dorset which is a new zone and will be hit hard, and North Dorset also for the 2nd year.
More detailed information will follow later…
As from tonight, meetings in Bridport Car Park will ONLY be by prior arrangement with DBBW. People should therefore contact us first, otherwise please do not just turn up at the previous meeting point. You can of course go to the Dorchester or Shaftesbury meeting points every night instead (look on the top right of this page!).
Meetings in other places and at other times can also be arranged.
[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.
Also the police have mentioned for us to ask people if you open a farm gate to please make sure you close it again and if you have dogs with you please make sure they are under control around livestock.
