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.

    Needless to kill these native species and unproved grounds for doing this. Protect livestock better, STOP killing our native species. Spend the funds on inoculations and better care for our species.

    Pointless and cruel slaughter of a precious and protected native species. There is no scientific evidence demonstrating that slaughtering badgers would eradicate bovine TB. The government must divert the substantial resources being used and instead improve farmer education, farming practices and biosecurity on farms. "New research led from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) says that badgers rarely come into contact with cattle. It suggests that TB is likely to be spread by bacteria in the environment, for example in slurry and manure."

    the cull is cruel and is making the spread of TB worse.
