Welcome to Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS)


GABS goes back into the fields to help save our badgers from 1st September 2015


The Government has now confirmed that the cull is going ahead again in Gloucestershire and Somerset and is being rolled out to Dorset.  In Gloucestershire the shooters have a target of killing between 265 and 679 badgers  this year and many will end up wounded and die a horrible and painful death.  We are asking people to come out and join us to help save the badgers from  Tuesday 1st September until the end of the cull which should last for 6 weeks to help  look for wounded badgers. You can find details of how to join us and what we do by clicking onto the Wounded Badger Patrol pages above.  Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting has stood out against the culls for the last  3 years and with your support we will have people out in the Gloucestershire cull zone, acting within the law looking for wounded badgers. The more people we have out during the cull, the more badgers we can help save so if you’re not on our mailing list please join us by emailing us on
