Supplementary Badger Culling in Dorset North zone 3 has started again, we have to state that we are against this as the facts are pointing to cattle to cattle transfer of Bovine TB is the major way it is being spread.
Numbers of badgers have never been properly investigated,people have taken a guess how many there are in all the zones,some people think that if a sett has 20 holes then at least 20 badgers are in there…this is not at all true,so the amount is being very over estimated, so yet again they will just kill as many adults and badger cubs they want…yes cubs will be slaughtered too !
We support vaccination of badgers,we helped to set up a Dorset group dedicated to doing this…Dorset Badger Vaccination Project and continue to support them,many other counties have done the same,some get government or local council support now ! Wales even had funding from the EU in the past!
The link from North Dorset Hunt Saboteurs below will give you information of where this is happening in Dorset,if you see or hear of any other areas in Dorset where people are trapping or shooting badgers it is totally illegal so please call the police 101 number and report it as a wildlife crime,mention badgers and culling to be flagged up to be dealt with more urgency!
If you think you can help us please send a private message to Dorset for Badger and Bovine Welfare,either on Facebook,Twitter or via the Website ( https://dorsetbandb.org/

North Dorset Hunt Saboteurs…
The current license for the 2019 Badger Cull in North Dorset is now active; making it now legal for Marksmen to trap and kill badgers all for prevention of Bovine Tuberculosis. This is despite the facts that there is very little supporting evidence for this cull.We are now stepping up our sett surveying and will soon be out preventing the trapping and killing of badgers in North Dorset.
Below is a list of major towns and villages within the North Dorset Cu…ll Zone, if you see or hear any pickups late at night, any cages with badgers or gun shots at night or early morning, please contact us with a location and we will check it out as soon as we can.
