Save Adur District Council's Badgers from Culling

159 Signatures Goal: 500

This is a national issue which will be of direct concern to the people ofAdur District Council when DEFRA "rolls out" its culling policy in 2014.


The object of the petition is to ensure that Adur District Council's badger population is as safe as possible from slaughter and that the already available injectable badger vaccine against bTB is used in as many cases as possible.


We ask this because we believe the culling policy is inhumane (DEFRA's measurement of "humaneness" is to time the screams of wounded badgers), inefficient (previous culls showed an increase in bTB because of badger movement) and unscientific (the majority of scientific opinion hold that a cull will have "no meaningful result").


To preserve the integrity of this petition please only sign it if you live, work or study in theAdur District Council area.

We, the undersigned, call on Adur District Council to prohibit the culling of badgers on council-owned land and invest in vaccination programmes locally. We ask this because we believe culling to be inhumane, inefficient and unscientific.

    This cull is not required look for the real cause of this disease which is spread by cattle and cattle movement.

    The cruel cull trials highlighted that this does not work and in fact spreads the disease. It is limited by the control of cattle movement and vaccination of cattle and badgers. An enormous waste of public money and unspeakably cruel.

    Soon there will be nothing left of Britain's wildlife. They are not making Earth anymore and once a species is gone it's gone. Scientific and statistic eveidence shows that culling does not curb TB. Inoculate/vaccinate. Wake up DEFRA and ill informed farmers. Soom you will have to go to Europe to visit the countryside.

    Vaccination & biosecurity will be effective in the long term - culling is cruel, horrible & ineffective.
