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.

    As well as being unspeakably barbaric in it`s incompetent execution, the government must know this cull is a knee jerk reactionary response and has no hope of actually eradicating bovine TB. As usual they are following the `easiest` laziest path- vaccinations exist if they really believe badgers are spreading TB. This cull is indefensible, ineffective and has no place in a civilised society.

    I think killing innocent badgers is cruel. They deserve to live a happy life.
