Stop The Badger Cull

on September 19, 2012

Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

I urge  the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to STOP  the planned cull of badgers.

· Over 70% of the badger population in large areas of the country will be killed – many of them healthy.

· 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.

The government needs 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.
