Chris Packham's stepdaughter Megan McCubbin admits 'worries' for him after 'death threats'

Megan McCubbin, 25, has revealed that her stepfather and Autumnwatch co-presenter Chris Packham is often “criticised and attacked” for his views and sometimes trolls can be “incredibly nasty”. The nature enthusiast said that despite “death threats” her stepfather has received, he is “ruffling the right feathers” by making his stance against badger culling and hunting known.

Megan said: “I do worry when Chris gets criticised and attacked [for his opposition to badger culling and hunting]. 

“I know it’s water off his back, but it’s incredibly nasty. I was with him when he discovered dead animals hanging on the gate, and when the death threats arrived I was part of the police process of taking fingerprints.

“So it’s not a nice environment to be in. But he’s ruffling the right feathers and making a noise that needs to be heard,” she added to Radio Times.

The revelation came after Chris had tweeted that a dead badger had been shockingly strung up on his gate after he spoke out against the badger cull.

Jo is a nurse, while Chris’s partner Charlotte Corney runs the Isle of Wight Zoo.

While isolating together, the now-colleagues penned a book entitled Back to Nature: How to Love Life and Save it.

However, Chris described one irritation that he had with Megan while they were cooped up indoors together.

He recalled: “The one thing she did in lockdown that got on my pip was making a mess of the kitchen.
