WRITER Jilly Cooper jumped on a bus as she gave her support to those opposing a badger cull in Gloucestershire.
The best-selling author joined the Badger Battle Bus campaign on Wednesday.
She met up with the Animal Aid and Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS) vehicle, which is touring the county this week to garner support opposing the culls.
She met up with campaigners in Bisley, close to where she lives.
They have been asking all political parties to declare if they will support their aims of stopping the planned cull of 2,500 badgers in the county from going ahead in June.
A spokesman for GABS said: "It's great that Gloucestershire badgers have the support of national celebrities like Jilly Cooper.
"She can help bring this whole issue to wider public attention before the shooting starts in the summer. We have been touring the county in the Badger Battle Bus and had wide ranging support from local people against the cull."
Tour manager Andrew Butler said: "The last cull was postponed but some people think it was stopped altogether.
"So this tour is about reminding people about the Government's plan to start the cull in the summer.
"We have been running the tour right up until election day. Some candidates may well have lost votes because of their stance."
Jeanne Berry, from GABS, added: "We've not found a single person in favour of the cull."
