A dead badger has been hung by his neck from vegan TV presenter Chris Packham‘s gate – with reports assuming the attack is linked to his views on the controversial badger cull.
Packham has previously described the cull as ‘eco-genocidal and vengeful’.
‘Without killing animals’
Packham shared an image of the animal with his 388,000 Twitter followers.
He captioned it: “Always nice to get home after a long day at work to a warm welcome at the gate.
“I’d be grateful if you have an issue with me and my views if you could express it without killing innocent animals.”
Packham received a number of supportive responses, with one Twitter user saying: “Appalling that lesser men see a need to show their disagreement in a cruel and childish way. They obviously don’t have the wherewithal to engage in intelligent debate.”
Another added: “Sorry you have to put up with our psychologically disturbed neighbours Chris. We need government to reverse the massive cuts to social services / mental health provision /policing so these people can be found/helped. Just a matter of time before they hurt people as well as animals.”
