On 15th December 2005 the British Government announced a twelve-week 'Public Consultation period' to consider whether and how to kill all
badgers. They believe that this is the only way to eradicate TB in cattle.
They are absolutely wrong.
Killing badgers does not decrease TB amongst cattle. In fact there is scientific evidence which shows the exact opposite. Far from lowering the incidence of bovine TB, badger culls in the past have even been shown to increase it.
Leading organisations including the RSPCA and Wildlife Trusts have already voiced their opposition, but only a massive public response can prevent the killing.
