Save Arun District Council's Badgers from Culling

438 Signatures Goal: 500

This is a national issue which will be of direct concern to the people of ArunDistrict Council when DEFRA "rolls out" its culling policy in 2014. The object of the petition is to ensure thatArun 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 theArun District Council area of West Sussex.

We, the undersigned, call on ArunDistrict 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.

    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.

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

    Lets make sure that NO badgers are killed in West Sussex as a part of a stupid and callous culling programme.We love old badger and he does not deserve to be blamed and murdered for the ignorance of farmers and government .

    Scientific evidence has shown culling badgers to increase roaming and therefore the spread of TB. Whatever the motives for this cull, they are based on neither reason nor compassion.
