Thousands of beautiful badgers to be killed

Badgers across England are currently being threatened: a planned cull will begin soon unless we can convince the government to stop the slaughter.

This cull is an extremely misguided plan to tackle bovine TB. The evidence that a mass slaughter of badgers would reduce levels of bovine TB is spurious at best.

The spread of bovine TB is, however, conclusively linked to the movement and intensive rearing of cattle in the meat and dairy industries, which ignore the fact that these sensitive, intelligent animals are subjected to exhaustion, pain, boredom, loneliness and fear. The best thing that all of us can do to protect badgers is find out more about the cull and the organisations that oppose it and visit the  TeamBadger.org and sign Brian May’s petition calling on the government to stop the cull.
