A group of about 30 anti-badger cull campaigners met in Frome to raise awareness of the government's plans to reduce the spread of Bovine TB in cattle.
The Badger Night Walkers group meet in Frome to hand out campaign leaflets
The Badger Night Walkers spokesman, Adrian Coward, said the group wanted to meet Frome people to encourage them to write to their MP, David Heath, who is the minister for Defra.
Mr Coward said: "We were heartened by the warm response received and almost unanimous support against the proposed killing."
He added that all of those engaged in discussion thought that killing badgers would not solve the Bovine TB problem.
About 500 leaflets were distributed encouraging the public to write to or contact Mr Heath, to question the government's policy and make clear the overwhelming public opinion against killing badgers.
Further similar activity will follow across Mr Heath's Frome and Somerton constituency.
