Save Suffolk County Council's Badgers from Culling

640 Signatures Goal: 500

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


The object of the petition is to ensure that Suffolk County 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 Suffolk County Council area.

We, the undersigned, call on Suffolk County 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.

    Badger culling should be stopped NOW it is inhuman. We can’t believe we are living in such a barbaric country the way we treat our beautiful animals is discussing. It needs to STOP now if people were to hear the cries and screams of these beautiful harmless animals they would not believe it and some laid in their dens for days suffering and in pain before they died. Even the gassing that this heartless government allows should be BAND!! as well.

    The badger cull proved scientifically and financially (not to mention morally) that the cull was an unmitigated disaster. The decent thing for Owen Patterson et al to do now is admit that and go with the vaccination program.

    Do we never learn from our past actions? We seem to destroy anything that gets in OUR way. Be it wolves, fox, badgers, and any other bird or animal (or indeed other human beings-think WW1&2) that has the temerity to take OUR food or something else, like land for development, that we want. Animals have rights too. Humans are oimnivores and can eat anything, not just beef. When the whole ecological chain collapses WE can turn to 'synthetic' food - what then do the beautiful creatures of the earth do but all die?

    Leave the badgers alone!!! We won't have any wildlife left in this country if Cameron & Paterson get their way.
