Save Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council's Badgers from Culling

33 Signatures Goal: 500

This is a national issue which will be of direct concern to the people of Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council when DEFRA "rolls out" its culling policy in 2014. The object of the petition is to ensure that Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough 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 Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council area of Warwickshire.

We, the undersigned, call on Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough 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.

    As an accredited badger vaccinator I know the benefits of this in badgers. Cattle vaccine is the real solution to bTB in cattle but EU regs need to be changed to allow this. The scientific evidence however simply DOES NOT support the killing of badgers. Please do not allow this to happen on land owned by N & B B C.
