Protect North Somerset Council's remaining badgers by investing in badger vaccination projects in the area.

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 North Somerset Council to assist with an alternative strategy which is already working across Wales and in many parts of England.


We, the undersigned, call on North Somerset Council to give financial support to the badger vaccination project being undertaken by Somerset Badger Group and to financially assist other bona fide badger vaccination projects which may be set up in the future.

Discussion

  • Midnight Snow I hope that the culls will stop and be replaced by vaccination programs.

  • Martin Kendall Eventually people will realise this is a cattle problem and efforts should be concentrated in that direction. Until such time, badger vaccination is the best option to remove them from the equation.

  • Susan Fairweather Culling is cruel, unnecessary & ineffective. Vaccination & increased biosecurity are the way forward.
