Halt the Badger Cull

July 23, 2011

Badgers and farmers will pay the cost of the cull

News today that the Government plans to pilot trials for the shooting of badgers in two bovine turberculosis (bTB) hotspots has unfortunately come as no surprise to the League and other welfare organisations.

This decision has been taken despite overwhelming scientific evidence which has shown that a cull would have little impact or may even be detrimental to the spread of Bovine Tuberculosis in cattle.

We are concerned that allowing people to shoot free-running badgers will result in many seriously injured badgers and could introduce a new rural bloodsport.

We want you to add your name to the many other thousands of people who are opposed to a cull.Please sign up now.

    I’ve already signed up to oppose the cull and also written to DEFRA ministers/my MP etc. I suggested that surely, as in humans, vaccination is the answer. They have all written back and said for some reason they haven’t managed to develop a vaccine yet and are many years off (and will no doubt stay many years away if they don’t make any effort to develop one). But I can’t understand (and have asked them but received no reply) what the difference is, apart from obviously dosage, between human and animal vaccination against TB?!
