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

We, the undersigned, call on Mid Sussex 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.
The human species is the cancer of the earth
Sensible humane cattle farming and accination is the sensible solution, do it now.
