Protect Cotswold District Council's remaining badgers by investing in badger vaccination projects in the area.

The "pilot culls" of badgers in Gloucestershire in 2013 have led many people to seriously question the humanity, efficiency and cost of this method of "controlling" bTB, especially as it has been condemned by so many leading and reputable scientists.


This petition calls on Cotswold District Council to assist with an alternative strategy which is already working across Wales and in many parts of England.


We, the undersigned, call on Cotswold District Council to give financial support to local badger vaccination projects being undertaken and to financially assist other badger vaccination projects which may be set up in the future.

  • Katriona Murphy If Stroud can NOT kill (Cull) then I see absolutely no reason for you not to follow suit.

  • Heather Martin I am shortly to move to the country and would like to think that my local Council is a protector of wildlife. Please consider the alternative strategy and cease this 'shotgun' slaughter on our beautiful land.

  • Dawn Beatson-Njie inhumane, unnesessary cruel and pointless. please stop this now and support vaccination. it is simply wrong
