How long does the Government think it can ignore its electorate? BAN has received so many emails in response to press images of badgers shot dead and piled up in a Wiltshire cull zone that we wanted to share some snippets more widely. The public has always been against the badger cull and our inbox shows they are becoming increasingly angry – and rightly so.
“This government is totally bloodthirsty and only interested in killing… not how they are killed.” TOM
“Why is the badger cull continuing with no evidence of any benefit? Why is the cull being carried out in such an inhumane way?” LISA
“This can’t go on any more. How can this be about TB? If they were that worried, why weren’t the badgers’ bodies disposed of correctly? It’s only about money and people who enjoy killing our beautiful badgers just for the pleasure of it.” KAREN
“Could you tell me why badgers are being killed when TB has not fallen at all in the cull zones and why the badgers that are shot are not tested for TB so we know if any have the disease?” ANDREW
“Why is all the scientific evidence rejected?” KEITH
“How absolutely heart-wrenching (that) in this country our wonderful animals are treated so. The government should be ashamed, encouraging lack of empathy and letting people think that they can kill badgers willy nilly. What country has this become? What message is this all sending? Well! Here’s your answer. And don’t say we need badger culling because we damn well know we don’t.” DONNA
