Leaked documents reveal shocking plans for badger cull extension
Remember in March 2020, the Government briefed journalists that intensive badger culling would be phased out and replaced with badger vaccination? It signalled a ‘seismic shift’ in the Government’s thinking and signalled an end to the badger cull. The news was picked up by every major media outlet in the country and clearly demonstrates the public interest in stopping the badger cull. But the Government lied. Leaked documents from Natural England shows eleven more licences to cull badgers will be issued this year and the death toll this year alone could be a total of 64,657 badgers.
Shockingly, the cull is extending into new counties including Derbyshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. So, if you want to help badgers in your local area (or elsewhere) find your group here or, if you need extra help, contact us for more information.
