(HAMPSHIRE) Online Hate Attack Report: Wildlife expert Chris Packham has vowed that intimidation will not stop him from campaigning after a suspected arson attack at his home #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.12: The broadcaster said two masked men set a vehicle on fire at the gate of his New Forest home at about 00:30 BST on Friday, causing extensive damage: He said the attack was the “cost” of online abuse he receives, but added it would not sway him from his causes…..

#AceDailyNews says that according BBC News Chris Packham’s attack on his New Forest home in a video on Twitter, Packham questioned if the men were members of one of a number of conservation organisations and rural groups “or some of my internet trolls, who fill my timeline with hate?”

Packham said “two masked men” drove a vehicle to his gates and set it on fire in the early hours of Friday

Hampshire Police said it was investigating the fire: He said he received many defamatory and libellous comments online, but those who posted them were getting away with it because the law, “as it stands, means that I am unable to take any action against this form of harassment”………..He said it was a frustrating situation, which came at a cost……………Perhaps the cost is having my gate burned down, causing thousands of pounds’ worth of damage,” he added.

PA Media: The fire came a day before Packham delivered a 100,000 signature petition to Buckingham Palace: He said he had previously had dead animals left at his home, including foxes and badgers, but actions against him had now escalated “to damaging that property”…….However, he said he would not bow to the pressure to support activities he did not agree with, such as “illegal shooting” and trail hunting………” If you think that by burning down those gates that I’m suddenly going to become a supporter… then you’re wrong,” he said: ” I will just carry on, because I have no choice. I cannot and will not let your intimidation sway me from my cause.”

In 2019, the BBC Springwatch presenter spoke about a “very calculated” death threat he received after campaigning for measures to protect birds from being shot.

The fire at his property came a day before he delivered a 100,000 signature petition to Buckingham Palace, which called on the Royal Family to conserve nature on their estates and reintroduce animals like beavers and wild boar.
