Operation Brockwatch

The Ulster Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Northern Ireland Badger Group launched a new strategy ‘Operation Brockwatch’. The strategy which is now active is a joint initiative whose objective is to protect our Badger population, their setts, and the many dogs wantonly sacrificed in ‘Badger Persecution’ a vile activity that stains our landscape.

The Brockwatch project will be run as a pilot in the first instance at a number of sites which have experienced Badger baiting on multiple occasions. These Badger setts, identified as vulnerable, will be watched on a ‘round the clock’ basis using modern technology.
