I know its not bird related but this is something I feel very strongly about. The government has now issued licenses for the culling of badgers, despite scientific evidence given to them that culling would not stop the spread of TB but would in-fact increase it.
Please sign this petition and share wherever you think you can. We need 100,000 signatures to try get this decision reversed and we are a third of the way there.
‘I think the most interesting observation was made to me by a senior politician
who said, “fine John we accept your science, but we have to offer the farmers a
carrot. And the only carrot we can possibly give them is culling badgers”.’
