Petition against the Badger cull

Wildlife TV presenter and cameraman Simon King set up an online petition to end the Badger cull instead of expanding in to new areas.

As I write this the petition stands at 88,712. It needs 100,000 to be considered for debate in parliament.

While I completely agree that Bovine TB is a horrible disease and we need to stand with farmers to help eradicate Bovine TB, killing Badgers is not the answer.

If you haven’t already sign this petition please can you do so. Please also tell your friends and family about it too.

The petition has until 25th February 2017.

If you regularly follow my blog, Facebook or Twitter feeds you will know I am a massive badger fan and I am really hoping the Badger cull isn’t extended in to Oxfordshire.

Here are some of my favourite Badger photos.

    I do hope that more people will sign this petition. The badger cull is based on very poor science, enormous harm is being caused to our badgers and it will not help farmers fight TB in cattle at all.
