Sign Petition

Protect Taunton Deane's remaining badgers by investing in badger vaccination projects in the Borough Council area.

367 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 Taunton Deane Borough Council to assist with an alternative strategy which is already working across Wales and in many parts of England.


We, the undersigned, call on Taunton Deane Borough 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.

    Btb a cattle disease please take Badgers out of the picture by vaccinating. It is not their fault & they should not pay with death. They are still persecuted even today by many who ignore the law. Badgers are well suited to vaccination, building herd immunity which will take them out of the Btb circle in 4/5yrs Killing for 4yrs will not do that. No one knows how many may be infected, killing healthy Badgers when they could build herd immunity is & can never be right for a Cow disease.
