Stay of Execution for English Badgers
Today's announcement by the Westminster Government that the planned Badger cull in the West Country is to be delayed until next year is good news particularly for these iconic animals. What the Government mean exactly is not clear. They claim the decision was made because it is too late into the season to carry out their plan. That sounds nonsense to me.
Has the anti-cull campaign meant nothing to them? Has the fact that the eminent science community has described their plans as unworkable and more likely to spread TB amongst cattle had no effect? Have the 100,000+ petitions signatures made no impression? This coalition does really take the public for idiots.
THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE CULL MUST GO ON!
