One of the eco lodge wildlife cameras picked up this classic badger shot a few nights ago. We know they are about, but only sometimes glimpse Badgers.
But then again it’s not a good time of year for badgers in Devon – for those of you following these things, we think we are just outside this year’s badger cull zone – by a hair. The final licences have not yet been published, but what’s out there on social media suggests the zone comes to within about 3 miles of Wheatland Farm. We have not been consulted about any proposed cull here.
But next year, who knows? We do know we won’t be giving permission for any cull at Wheatland Farm, although we are happy to talk about other approaches to ensuring badgers and cows stay healthy, as we know the difficulties and heartache TB causes our friends and neighbours.
