Today the sett surveying day from Malvern in Worcestershire was very well attended. Sadly one the setts we checked, which was thriving in the summer, and had not just been blocked but dug out as well. Whether by the Ledbury Hunt, after a hunted fox, or by badger diggers we do not know. It was recent and a sad reminder that sett mapping and regular sett checks are vital work in badger protection. We urge everyone to check near where they live all year round. It’s not just government sponsored culls which kill badgers. We will be doing more of these days so watch this space.
