URGENT! Please respond to public consultation on more cull zones
Defra has announced three public consultations on further expansion of the Government’s badger cull policy. Make no mistake, this signals an intention to cull in an unknown number of areas in eight more counties: Avon, Berkshire, Derbyshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.
This will be in addition to the ongoing culls in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Cheshire.
What can I do?
It is vital that as many people respond to the consultation before the closing time of 11.59pm on Monday 19th March. With such a tight deadline, we’ve put together some information to help you respond quickly:
Please use it to put your response in your own words otherwise it will not count. There is, of course, much more that could be said, so feel free to add your own thoughts and information.
There are two other consultations with deadlines in early April so we’ll post some notes on these later.
