Owen Paterson targeted over badger cull

North Shropshire | News | Published:

New Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has been targeted by animal rights militants who have published his address and photographs of his home online as part of a campaign against the controversial badger cull.

The North Shropshire MP, who was moved to the post in David Cameron's Cabinet reshuffle, last week backed a badger cull trial in England despite having owned two of the creatures as pets when he was growing up.

Mr Paterson is reported to have obtained a High Court injunction against the website, which also lists his office phone number.

The activists removed the information but within hours it had reappeared on a second 'mirror' site hosted in Australia which is still accessible in the UK.
