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.
