One of the main problems we face is that the general public are often misinformed of what is legal and what constitutes a breach of the current wildlife laws; very often by other parties they have approached for help.
A recent example involves advice given to a household that was experiencing serious badger issues in relation to property damage; the advice received, “badgers are not protected and can be trapped and killed”.
This could have resulted in a criminal prosecution if these actions had been carried out.
From our investigation the “helpdesk” contacted was reading from a prepared script, but this information was incorrect and unlawful in relation to the species concerned.
Urban Wildlife, along with other professional organisations, give out FREE advice when dealing with protected species and the laws surrounding them.
