This year due to coronavirus, the Hunting Office which is the executive arm of all the hunting with hound organisations, had it’s annual AGM via Zoom.
The AGM was broken down into webinars on specific subjects. Unbeknown to the organisers, one of the 100+ Hunt Masters who attended, clearly has an axe to grind, this disgruntled Master (who is unknown to us), recorded the webinars and sent copies to us at Stop the Cull.
Whilst Stop the Cull certainly does frequently report on and campaign on hunting issues, we immediately decided to hand over all the footage to the Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA) because they are the organisation with the most experience on hunting, this is the one thing that the Master of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) clearly agrees with us on!
If you would like to help protect our wildlife, please consider becoming a member of the HSA. It costs £20 per year which is a bargain – so why not buy a membership for a friend whilst you’re at it. link.
Everyone meet Nick Hector, he lives at Withypool Farm, Barrows Drove, Somerset BS28 4HF. Nick is a badger cull director in Somerset. Nick doesn’t come across as the scummiest of folk we’ve ever crossed but looks can be deceiving, especially for this seemingly harmless family guy…..
His business MPL Solutions Ltd serves the explicit purpose of killing badgers. It’s a very lucrative business for Nick and his associates, namely Hayden Garret and his brother Tim Hector.
As you can see from their accounts, their wildlife massacring venture is making some money with assets of £227,868. That’s quite a substantial amount of money – the humble farmer would have any of us believe they are quite hard done by!
You would think they wouldn’t need extra money from such an odious task seeing as they already have income streams from their day jobs.
Nick is a cow exploiter and along with Tim is to inherit the local Wedmore butcher shop Hectors Farm Shop from Daddy Hector.
Nick breeds turkeys who he also kills onsite at Withypool Farm within one of the grimmest set ups you could imagine, inside the back of a truck, surrounded by bins of festering dead birds and sacks of overflowing feathers. A blatant disregard for any of the major biosecurity risks this presents, especially considering badger bodies are regularly exchanged throughout these buildings too.
Multiple scrap metal heaps also spill out across the farm and recent visits confirm that Nick might not be doing too well in the cull after all, given the amount of obliterated cage remains sitting freshly on the piles.
One pile in particular caught our eye and has been reported to the police. Nick decided to dump a whole truckload of rubbish and tyres on top of an active badger sett! Nick, that is not the way to go, although seeing that you are not very good at your job we are not surprised you resort to illegally blocking a badger sett.
Seeing as wife Rachel Hector has been down Nick’s throat to get their fancy new farm house built we can see the motive behind wanting to slay-4-cash. Nick no doubt wants to prove himself as the future head of the Hector empire but recently when faced with a lone sab bashing cages right outside the open doorway to their home, Nick went into hiding! What a guy!
Hayden Garret, also a dairy farmer at Pine Farm, Wrington Hill, Wrington, Bristol, United Kingdom, BS40 5PR is an ex- chairperson of the Somerset branch of the NFU. Given this position we wouldn’t expect him to be against badger slaughter (or any slaughter for that matter) but with a whopping half a mil of liabilities owing in 2019 we could see why Garret would want to top up the money pot in any way he can. Blood money isn’t the way though Hayden.
Tim Hector is a venerated member of the Cooper Tanner and Wedmore group. Who are well known real estate agents in the South West and Tim handles all of their dealings in
agricultural land as well as being a cattle auctioneer. So many strings Timbo! We wonder if the Cooper and Tanner customers would be happy that their money goes to fund a badger murdering family. We think not. Cooper and Tanner have a Facebook you can have a look at: https://www.facebook.com/cooperandtanner/ And they also have a telephone number, so you wish to enquire if a house on the market is splattered in badger blood: 01373 831010 So seeing that the cull isn’t going too well for poor Nick Hector, we wonder if getting involved in murdering badgers is something he regrets. If you want to, you can give him a call and ask him on: 01934 712478.
This is James Badman and his wife Rhoda. They live in Panborough, in-between the picturesque towns of Glastonbury and Cheddar, and run a dairy farm and caravan site called Garden End Farm. As if they weren’t busy enough, they also decided to join the badger cull this year.
Multiple cages have been laid around their caravan park, which is described on their website as “sitting amongst our apple and plum trees.” No mention of the badger blood splattered against the floor. We believe it is nefarious not to be open to their customers about their badger murdering activities. As their website reads; “The campsite has hedges covering three of the four sides making it safe for children.” But we are not too sure it is very safe for children to be exposed to firearms, and being totally honest, it is those hedges that are being used to hide the cages to trap and murder badgers.
James finds himself a bit of an activist. In 2012 he led an action blockading a dairy farm as a protest for the low wholesale price of milk. Instead of realising that it is deeply disturbing to forcefully impregnate and milk cows for profit, he went on with his dairy business and decided to join the badger cull. Mr Edward Badman (James’s dad) attempted a bit of a political career in the local council, but stood down earlier this year alongside George Bethell (who he shares a failed Slurry company with).
We wonder if they encountered some opposition to the badger cull and had to walk away from it to ensure Wedmore based badger cull company owner Nick Hector didn’t get into too much trouble.
Well, Mr Badman, you chose wrong. And we know you did wrong because your business is going bust. You just dissolved your Slurry business after fucking about lending yourself money multiple times and your Dairy company owed half a million pounds at the end of last year. Did you think killing badgers would make you some money? As we said, you really, really chose wrong.
The good thing about it is that everybody can tell Mr Badman about his wrongdoing! This is Garden End Caravan Site telephone number: 01934 712414
This is their address, in case you want to camp there and you get lost: Garden End Farm, Panborough, Wells BA5 1PN
AND THEY ARE PART OF THE CAMPING AND CARVANNING CLUB, WHO WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE HAPPY ABOUT THIS. Give them a call here: 0845 130 7631
Or write to them on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/thefriendlyclub Please keep all communications polite and DO NOT call them at night, in case they are resting before shooting badgers in the morning.
We suspect that Mike doesn’t have permission from directors including Richard Dawkins to kill badgers, but may well be getting pressured by his neighbours who have clearly gone down with bTB according to the ibtb.co.uk website:
It’s sadly something that is seen across all cull zones, farmers who have no interest in being involved in the badger cull being bullied into it by neighbours, cull directors and local parish organisers. We do not know if Mike Kettlewell has been pressured or if he has gone along with it willingly, but he certainly has logged into the NFU’s badger killing website.
Please email Mike Kettlewell at: email@example.com tel: 01608 644693 mobile: 07850 002245 and politely ask him to make a public stand against the badger cull.
Read through our previous posts to find out more on the NFU badger cull database hack. Every day whilst the cull continues another 20 people involved in killing badgers will be revealed. All of the previous maps and any new ones will be put onto one page, which you can find here.
On Friday, we revealed that the NFU website (where All the data on where badgers are killed, And who has done the killing) is currently heavily under attack by anti-cull hackers.
So what have the NFU done to try and calm the shooters?
They’ve sent a feeble message telling everyone that “Foreign IP addresses are blocked”, and that multiple attempts to access different accounts using the same IP address will be locked out for an hour. Users are told if they are locked out, to try again an hour later and they can always click “forgotten password”.
We know they sent that out, because we’ve seen it.
We have also been passed on this screenshot of crime reports from within one of the Cheshire zones (GI which they refer to as Leo). Dated just yesterday, the 20th of September.
When the hackers said they still had access, they clearly were not lying. Everyone involved in killing badgers should realise that the NFU doesn’t have their best interests at heart, and we can prove it.
Below is a map. On that map there are currently just 20 shooters (a random selection of the many, many hundreds we now have). Every day that the website https://www.ggkkzz.info/Account/Login is up, another 20 will go on the map. So, if you are involved in killing badgers, you may want to consider contacting the NFU and asking them to pull the site.
And as Fieldsport news recently reported on another leak: We suggest “anyone whose data has been leaked to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office ICO.org.uk and take it from there.” Maybe Charlie Jacoby who has now been outed can take the lead? Individuals who have their details leaked can sue the source (in this case the NFU) and are entitled to thousands.
So the NFU now has to decide, at what point they are going to pull the plug on their culling website? Leave it up and watch us expose 20 new people every day, or pull the plug and throw the badger cull into chaos.
Please do contact all 20 of these people. If you want to stay totally safe, keep all correspondence polite. If you want to withold your number dial 141 first, but be aware that the police will be able to track you and may well contact you if you make threats. Keep it polite, a simple “Can you explain why you are killing badgers?” is perfectly within the law.
When we first read about the Carcase Management System (CMS) website back in February after a leak from the NFU, we knew the secrets it held would be priceless to the anti cull movement. All of the cage trappers, free shooters and assorted badger cull helpers all log, all of their badger killing information onto a single website. Locations searched for badger setts are logged, as are kills, who did the killing, what time etc etc.
Thanks to some obvious clues in metadata it was only minutes before we discovered the url: www.ggkkzz.info/Accounts Since that discovery back in February we have been gaining regular access to the site, pushing deeper and further into huge piles of data including crime reports, shooters identities, locations of kills and email addresses of those involved.
On Tuesday, the NFU IT people finally spotted us and have since made some minor adjustments to try and protect the site. But unfortunately for them it is too little, too late, we are in the system and will continue to edit and scrape data, we were also changing records (including crime reports) as they come in. This year’s data on kills sent to Natural England will be based on our false reports, making the continuation of the cull completely pointless.
Going through the records of shooters, we were not completely surprised to find Fieldsports TV presenter Charlie Jacoby had attempted to kill badgers back in 2017, although he went out on 4 different occasions, he never actually managed to shoot any badgers. (see the image above)
Every shooter and cage trapper and helper who is involved in the badger cull has to log on to this system, using their email addresses which we now have. Attached are just a handful, we will be releasing more of the data in the coming days and weeks.
The tory government are so upset with us, that they have got their friends in the police (not sure how they have any friends in the police given the cuts to the service over the last 10 years) to pull the innocentbadger.com website, so we now have a new website url: innocentbadger.is
The reason given for the website getting pulled was that a list of pro cull and hunting tory mps was against the terms of service. So it is no longer being hosted by us. However it is still on the wayback machine and if it gets pulled from there, no doubt it will pop up somewhere else.
It is important to note that this list is a couple of years out of date, although many of the details will be correct, it may make sense to politely knock on the door and check they still live at the address before organising any demonstrations.
We would also advice that you “save” the list as it may well get pulled at any moment.
The tories said at the beginning of the year that they would “phase out” the badger cull, yet they have now licenced 11 new zones. But what else would you expect from the tories?
Purchased in 2017, Simon and Lucy Orbell are now getting in a nice income from their Cornish holiday home. Advertised on a number of websites and fully booked except one week in October (only £700 a week) It is very close to the beach as you can see in this aerial photograph.
But when Lucy & Simon went on holiday recently to Cornwall, we have been informed that they chose to stay in a hotel in Wadebridge. From August the 20th-24th they stayed at the Molesworth Arms hotel. Simon and Lucy did have a nice holiday in Madrid booked in June but unfortunately had to cancel. A source close to Orbell tells us that last year they went to Garda in Italy. Alright for some! but then when you have a million pound contract from the british government to help protect badger shooters, they can afford to go anywhere.
