Make a visible effort to photograph the baiters and try to interview with
names, saying  it's for an investigative reporting project, and the baiting
practice is not legal (ie, as if an attempt to capture, and unlikely the
practice can be shown as otherwise).  Perhaps letters to photography clubs
and such can make a requirement that the photographer assert that no baiting
was used before works are acceptable in contests or whatever.  Take action
to get the practice and perpetrators be recognized as wrong and apparently
an illegal act.
