Action Alert: Badger Cull Petition

The League Against Cruel Sports opposes the proposed badger cull on two main grounds:

  • a cull would fly in the face of scientific evidence about how to control the spread of bovine tuberculosis, and could even exacerbate the problem; and
  • authorising a cull would create a new bloodsport by licensing the shooting of badgers for gun-toting volunteers.

The League is calling for a badger vaccination programme instead of a cull.  Please sign the League’s petition.  Thank you.
