Stop the badger cull!
Information about the anti-cull campaign
Can the cull
At the beginning of 2020 Natural England received applications to kill badgers in 18 new areas. These areas include Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Granting the licences would be contrary to the advice of scientists who warn that killing badgers won't solve the problem of TB in cattle, and could even make it worse. Most of the badgers killed will be perfectly healthy. Moreover some of those killed may well have been vaccinated under an iniative part-funded by the government!.
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.
