The Law

Watch this space – more information to come.

In the meantime, authorised cull operators during the period/s set out by the licences obviously do not have to abide by the ‘Protection of Badgers Act 1992’ in terms of killing badgers, if they do so as they are supposed to and in the areas covered by the licences.

The Act still applies to everyone regarding badger setts and interference with those setts. For brief information regarding the law, check out freebeagles (also a work-in-progress) and click on the link in the above paragraph to be taken to the Protection of Badgers Act itself.
