The first licence for the badger cull was issued on Monday 17th 2012 in the West Gloucestershire because its believe that badgers spread Bovine TB onto the cattle, but the problem is that most badgers may get the cull, healthy ones along with the infected ones.
– We don’t know how Bovine TB spreads between cattle and badgers, and which direction it goes, plus we also don’t know if other wildlife has got it like mink, fox, mole, rat, ferret and wild deer.
– 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.
– Also there is another alterative to the culling with a vaccination to both cattle and badgers being prepared.
– We can also control the cattle as well, by keeping the food supply away from setts so badgers cant raid them, or moving the cattle away from the sett altogether,
So sign Dr Brian May CEO team badger e-petition below and put a stop to this unnecessary cull
