OXFORDSHIRE Badger Group is calling on locals to back a campaign to badger every MP in the country into protecting the maligned mammals.

Honourary member Dominic Dyer, who is CEO of the Badger Trust, published a book in August entitle Badgered to Death, in which he claims to ‘pick apart the science and electioneering behind Britain’s most controversial wildlife policy’ – the pilot badger culls.

Mr Dyer’s publisher has now launched a crowd funding campaign to raise enough money to send a copy of the book to every MP in Parliament before the next badger cull debate on March 27.

Oxfordshire Badger Group has called on people in the county to donate what they can to the crowd funder.
