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

347 Signatures Goal: 500

The "pilot culls" of badgers in Somerset 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 Mendip 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 Mendip 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.

    I feel the cull is inhumane. Surely we can find a way that honours the Life in all. Thank you.

    As a keen rambler who lived in the Mendip District for over 50 years I fully support the opposition to the culling of badgers.

    The Mendip Hills represent an ever declining natural resource and it is therefore important to all wildlife to do our upmost to preserve it. As badgers are currently under threat, one of a very few indigenous mammals left in the UK, we would ask you for your support.
