The government gave the go-ahead to the cull, which is expected to see about 5,000 badgers killed over the next few weeks in Somerset and Gloucestershire, in a bid to tackle bovine tuberculosis which experts believe is passed on to cattle by badgers.

God will bring punishment to those who are cruel to his creation.

The UK National Health Service came about historically with a Giant struggle to save lives, along with the welfare beniefits, womens freedom. Now the UK Government is trying to destroy it all, and we feel history is repeating its self regarding the years leading up to the war. The NHS, the welfare beniefts, the Citizens Advice Beauro, the legal aid for the poor and so much more is being destroyed. One of the reasons is because the so called lack of monies.

Yet the Government is slaughtering, torturing, causing real bad stuff to happen to humans, animals, environment and then they are also wasting money slaughtering all these poor voiceless animals and people.

There are so many protests to save these innocent lives of these badgers, and so much more but they are NOT listening.

But people like you are listening and perhaps together we can make a difference.

Thank you everyone for noting the news here and all over C2.
with respect.

How come this never happened in the past..unless they have to admit now that England is overpopulated by humans, the more cattle needed for a hungry nation the more the wildlife will suffer.

Good for the WWT, I wish the rest of the UK felt this way. Killing badgers won't solve the problem. It's just plain murder.

IMPORTANT CONTACT INFORMATION - PLEASE POST AND SPREAD WIDELY

If coming into the Gloucestershire Cull Zone please head towards Tewkesbury (if you're coming from further south, there may be better places for you to go to). We expect shooting to take place during the night, between the hours of 9pm and 6am roughly.

*During the day (10am - 6pm) call 01386 761455 for information about accommodation, required equipment & maps, basic legal advice and arrestee support. For urgent legal advice or support for anyone arrested, you can also call 07551 577870 if you can't get through to the landline.

*Between 6pm and 6am (roughly) call 01386 761455 or 07551 577870 if you have information that could be useful, to find out meeting places (for those who are not already part of a group or are new to the cull), for arrestee support, legal advice, accommodation information and to receive up-to-date information about the cull.

If you require accommodation, please try to let us know in advance if possible how many people will be coming and for how many days / nights, as well as if you have any particular needs.

Autonomous groups & individuals (those who know what they're doing, have transport and do not need to meet up with others): please contact us on one of the above numbers around 6pm each evening that you will be in the zone. We will then know what resources we have each night, until what time you'll be available and where you are going to be based. We will then know which areas are covered and can contact you if we hear information about shooting.

There are tactics available for everyone to use, so don't feel intimidated about calling up and saying you just want to walk peacefully on public roads! For those who do run into problems with the law, the 3 criminal defence firms we recommend are:

*Bindmans (based on Gray's Inn Road, London)
*Birds (based in Wandsworth, London)
*Kelly's (based in Brighton)

(the police have to call a lawyer for you if you have been arrested)

Oliver Letwin Mp for West Dorset UK is a complete disgrace, for he actively approves of, and voted for the cull, despite the fact there is no scientific evidence that badgers pass TB to the cows, for they simply do not. The badgers contract TB from foraging in cow pats! Vaccinate the cows as we always did, and no problem!! I have mentioned to him, that this could cause him to lose his reputation as a caring MP along with his expected votes. I am disgusted with him!
