Save Tendring District Council's Badgers from Culling

49 Signatures Goal: 500

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


The object of the petition is to ensure that Tendring 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 Tendring District Council area.

We, the undersigned, call on Tendring 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 methodology has been shown to be flawed both in theory and in practice. There can be no logical reason to pursue this as a workable policy

    Pointless as already proven. Vaccinate and sort the issue permanently rather than throw money down the drain and reduce our already declining wildlife
