Stop the UK Badger Cull

STOP the UK BADGER CULL

Responsible department:

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

We, the undersigned, call on the UK government to stop the planned cull of badgers on the following grounds: · Over 70% of the badger population in large areas of theUnited Kingdomwill be killed, many of them healthy. · The method of free-shooting badgers could cause severe injury to many thousands of badgers. · Independent scientific studies have shown that culling would be of little help in reducing bovine TB, and even suggest that it could make things worse in some areas. We urge the UK government to stop the cull and implement the more sustainable and humane solution of both a vaccination programme for badgers and cattle, along with improved testing and biosecurity.

  • Audrey Blackwell Badgers must not be singled out for this persecution when there are so many other ways that this T.B can be spread it makes no sense at all , please stop this now and look at other ways to protect cattle and badgers .

  • Anonymous Slaughtering healthy badgers will not solve btb in cattle. We should be following the Welsh example of tighter cattle movement controls, annual testing and in problem herds whole herd culling.

  • Rhiannon Bloomfield There is a much more humane alternative to cruelly hunting and slaughtering these beautiful animals, vaccination and I do not see why it was used in Wales, effectively but cannot be used in England. This government is a joke.
