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.

    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

    The badger is the image of so many wildlife trusts. Stop the cull.

    I am saddened and shocked that the government has agreed to cull badgers when there is scientific evidence that they are not the cause of the spread of tb
