Stop the badger cull and the use of snares!
The Government have announced that killing badgers will take place in more areas including Leicestershire. This is against the advice of scientists who warn that it won't solve the problem of TB in cattle, and could even make it worse. Most of the badgers killed will be perfectly healthy.

Snares catch domestic animals as well as wild ones. The animals suffer horrific injuries as they struggle to get free yet the Government has run an experiment on snaring live badgers. The picture, taken by Helen Soame, is of a Leicestershire badger killed by a drag snare.
