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.

    Theresa May supports badger culling (and hunting) as do most of her government. It is shameful that this costly, inhumane and unworkable cruelty is continuing, especially when the majority of this country are opposed to it. That's a Tory govt for you.

    Bovine TB accounts for less than 1% of TB cases in the UK - we get the rest from human transmission. There has to be a better way of controlling TB than killing animals responsible for less than 1% of infections
