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

  • jeff hallett The only way to stop badgers transmitting btb to cattle is vaccination of badgers and improved husbandry on farms

  • ann jarrett Please think again, not enough research has gone into this !!!

  • Ama Menec Vaccination of both cattle and badgers is the only credible way forward. The badger culls in both West Somerset and West Gloucestershire have been ruinous to those rural communities and to any tourism they might have had.
