Protect Forest of Dean 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 Forest of Dean 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 Forest of Dean 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.

  • Anonymous please put an end to this dreadful ,unscientific cull of badgers and assist financial support of badger vaccination programmes.
