 - UK badgers need your urgent help. UK badger culls are to be debated in Westminster on 27th March – please urge your MP to attend the debate and oppose further killing.

Almost 15,000 badgers have been shot over the past four years as part of the Government’s strategy to ‘control the spread of bovine tuberculosis in cattle’. Culling has taken place across ten zones in seven English counties.

None of the killed badgers were tested for bovine TB. Controlled shooting has been rejected by the British Veterinary Association because of animal welfare concerns. The culls have cost the taxpayer an estimated £40 million to date, with no sign of any benefit.
