Animal rights group publishes addresses of farmers taking part in badger cull

The group, which Farmers Guardian has chosen not to name, managed to get hold of the addresses after the Welsh Government accidentally released them in a freedom of information request.

 

Activists are now being urged to ‘monitor activity’ at the farms in a social media post which has been shared almost 400 times since the weekend.

 

One comment on the post refers to farmers as ‘disgusting’, ‘vile’ and ‘dirty’, while another suggests dairy farming practices are ‘contaminating the countryside’.

Last year, the NFU in England said it was extremely concerned that if farmers participating in the culls were identified, they could be subjected to ‘intimidation, harassment and illegal activities’.

 

A Welsh Government spokesman said: “Due to an administrative error, a document sent in response to a Freedom of Information request was released without removing an element of personal data.

 

“We have launched an internal inquiry and are urgently reviewing our procedures in light of this error.”
