Non-UK residents against the proposed Badger cull

Stop the badger cull

Responsible department: Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

We, the undersigned, call on the government to stop the planned cull of badgers on the following grounds:

· Over 70% of the badger population in large areas of the country will be killed, many of them healthy.

· The method of free-shooting badgers could cause severe to many thousands of badgers.

· 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.

We urge the government to stop the cull and implement the more sustainable and humane solution of both a vaccination programme for badgers and cattle, along with improved testing.
