About Avon Against the Badger Cull
Avon Against the Badger Cull is a friendly group of local wildlife enthusiasts who meet regularly to prepare for national badger culls then monitor and peacefully and legally protest them when they take place.
HOW WE DID IN 2019.
We had teams out day and night protecting the local badgers during the cull. We feel we put up a strong resistance and publicly showed we did not agree with the slaughter. We are also out sett surveying year round to locate where badgers are residing to make efforts in the cull more impactful.
The targets show they had to adjust the minimum target after the cull due to not reaching the proposed target which means our effects made a great impact.
Original minimum target: 1297, original maximum target: 1758.
Targets adjusted to minimum 962 and maximum 1306. Total badgers killed 1084.
Rest in peace to those beautiful creatures, we won't forget that number and it will keep us determined to stop the cull and protect those who survived the first year of the cull in Avon.
We are currently gearing up to fight against the cull this September and October, now is the time to step up for our local badgers!
