If you know of a badger sett please check it occasionally for signs of disturbance.  If you do find any signs of disturbance or if you see any signs of suspicious activity DO NOT APPROACH.  The men who do this can sometimes be violent and may attack you.


Contact the Police immediately using 999 request that the call be logged as an incident.  Make a note of the descriptions of all individuals seen, their dogs and any implements they have with them.  Also note any car registration numbers you see in the area.

If you come across a disturbance at a sett after the event, you should contact both the Police and the Northumberland Badger Group. Please make notes of all you see and if possible take photographs but do not move anything or walk over the site.

We would also like to know of all setts and road casualties and a Grid Reference would be appreciated so that we can record them accurately on our database.  Better still WHY NOT JOIN US and help directly.
