The method of controlled shooting has never been tested and we have serious welfare concerns. Badger populations could be reduced by 70 per cent, and as the cull cannot be selective, many of the badgers killed will be healthy.
The League has teamed up with the RSPCA and many other like-minded organisations to oppose this cull, but we need your help. The trials can only be carried out if 70 per cent of the land in the two areas has been signed up to the cull. We are asking farmers and landowners to sign our declaration to Natural England and the government to state that they will not permit the badger cull trials on their land.
|If you are a farmer of landowner in either the west Somerset or west Gloucestershire area then please sign our declaration. Or, if you want to help please get in touch with our campaigns team or consider donating to the campaign. |
