PETITION: End the Badger Cull Instead of Expanding It to New Areas

Posted by on January 18, 2017 | Permalink

More than 10,000 badgers were shot to death last year. Let’s stop the cull from expanding again this year.

Since 2013, 14,800 badgers have been killed in a government cull attempting to control bovine tuberculosis. Against scientific advice and before a four-year trial has been completed, the government is now expanding the cull to additional counties – where tens of thousands of healthy badgers could be killed.

Team Badger needs your help. The coalition of animal-protection groups, including PETA, is pushing for the issue to be debated in Parliament. If you’re a UK resident, you can help by adding your name.

Massacring wildlife in this way is wrong on every level: it’s inhumane, unfair, expensive, and ineffective. If the UK Government and Parliament petition receives 100,000 signatures, it will help us get the cruel cull considered for debate. We’ve done it before – and now, we need your help to do it again.
