Here's the problem ;
DEFRA - the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs!
Environmental affairs MUST be separated from food & rural affairs, they contradict each other!
Govt officials receive 'big bickies' ($$$'s) from ranchers & big ag, hence will always side with them!

There is no need to kill the badgers.
Thank you for sharing, sharing is caring.

Very upsetting. Unfortunately, all governments pander to the big lobby groups and it's the environment and wildlife that suffers. This is just too disgusting for words..

Poor little Badgers ! Isn't it amazing that the smaller animals always bear the brunt for anything that happens to cattle.

I understand that one county (Dorset?) has experienced a rise in the cases of bovine TB since the cull.....
this cull is appalling.

Thank you for posting Wendy.
kind regards, Joan

This is very sad. The badgers are being blamed and killed with no actual science to back up the claims.

This is another example of governments all over the world waging war on wildlife. It is a foregone conclusion that many politicians are corporate whores and that people will have to start getting more involved in their countries politics if there is to be any hope of change. According to WWF, 60% of all animal life on earth has disappeared since 1970. This is a huge wake up call!!! Thank you so .much Wendy for sharing this!

with a permit in Germany and Spain and other countries people can hunt badgers mostly between August and December, it is just another hobby and not so costy than the lions in Africa. disgusting and sad.

with a permit people can hunt badgers in certain time, it is a hobby like hunting a lion only cheaper, in Germany and Spain and a couple of other EU countries it is nothing special to hunt, disgusting and sad.

Noted, my friend. I do not and probably will never understand why governments are so eager to kill off our beautiful wildlife. Got Trump doing it here.
