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.

    Potentially flawed evidence to suggest that badgers are totally responsible for the spread of bovine T.B. I have seen many dairy farmers keeping cattle in appalling conditions in the U.K. particularly when inside during winter months. That and the fact that these cattle are milked unmercifully for their short lives could very well be a factor of any major spread of disease within a herd.
