ARAs use vuvuzelas to scare badgers away from cull zones

Animal rights activists are being allowed to use vuvuzelas to scare badgers away from cull zones without being prosecuted, farmers have claimed.

The country's leading animal welfare organisation is facing accusations of selectively enforcing the 1992 Protection of Badgers Act.

Under the legislation offences include "disturbing a badger when it is occupying a badger sett" either deliberately or recklessly.

Using vuvuzelas to scare out of their setts is one of a series of tactics being adopted by activists determined to prevent the cull taking place in West Gloucestershire and West Somerset.
