So what is Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS)?

 

GABS is a peaceful, law-abiding campaign group made up of volunteers who understand that culling badgers is an inhumane and ineffective means of attempting to control the transmission of Bovine TB in cattle. 

 

We believe there is a better way.

 

GABS has been campaigning against the cull in a calm and respectful manner since 2013. 

 

We work year round to raise awareness of the badger cull and during the cull itself we organise and run Wounded Badger Patrols

 

During the culling periods, we focus our attention on walking in the countryside, on designated public footpaths, to search for any badgers that may be wounded and require veterinary treatment. 

 

Following the first year of culling, the Government appointed Independent Expert Panel concluded that a significant percentage of badgers did not die within five minutes of being shot.  

 

This meant that the cull had failed the Government’s own humaneness test.

 

Despite this failure and at huge financial cost, the Government has expanded the cull year on year.  In 2020 the cull covered a staggering 54 zones throughout the South and North West of England.  We could face even more zones in 2021.

 

This is what motivates us to do what we legally can to help protect this most persecuted of native British mammals.

 

We won’t stop until the cull stops!
