STOP the UK BADGER CULL
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.

Comments: The government cull showed that this was not effective. Please stop the culls now and put the money towards the badger vaccination programme. Culling is cruel and the many other problems causing TB in cattle should be addressed such as cattle movement and conditions. .
