Animal rights activists have published what they claim is a comprehensive list of farmers leading the badger cull complete with addresses, phone numbers and a map.
The Stop the Cull group has suggested its supporters get in touch with the scores of cull organisers it says it has identified to express their opposition, “sabotage” their time by making misleading phone calls or arrange demonstrations outside their farms.
Stop the Cull insists it is not encouraging anyone to harass or threaten organisers but said its move will disrupt those carrying out what it says is a cruel and immoral government policy.
The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) condemned the tactic, claiming it was designed to frighten and intimidate ordinary farming families.
Another group that campaigns against the cull, the Badger Trust, said it understood the anger but expressed concern that the tactic could lead to people being threatened.
Stop the Cull claims its list exposes more than 100 directors of companies set up to carry out the cull, which is due to begin again in the next few weeks.
It says on its website: “We believe that the public should know where the badger killers reside so that anyone can make their feelings known to them.”
The site suggests activists block their numbers from being seen before ringing cull organisers or buy cheap mobile phones and pay-as-you-go sim cards. “It’s a small investment to make, knowing you can tie killers up for hours.”
