Finding a wounded badger

If we find a wounded badger we will not touch it as badgers, even cubs, can be dangerous if injured.  


However, if it is safe to do so, we cover the badger’s head with a towel or blanket to decrease its stress.


If you do find any wounded or dead badgers it is important any finds should be reported urgently to Vale Wildlife Hospital on 01386 882288 or 07961 413574 after 5pm.


Where possible we need to try and get a good evidence record which can stand up to external scrutiny.


This includes: not touching the badger, noting its exact location by grid reference if available, taking video or still film evidence if possible. In order to maximise the potential publicity benefits it would be good if any filming etc is sent to GABS initially and not shared on social media.

GABS is a proud  member of:

Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS) is a group of volunteers who came together in the summer of 2012 to try and prevent the planned badger cull in our county. Like farmers, we want to see the end of the spread of Bovine TB in cattle; the evidence shows that culling badgers is not the answer.


We regularly work with local people and national charities and we only campaign peacefully and within the law and do not believe in intimidation; we have supporters of all ages and occupations, including farmers.
