BLOG FROM THE BADGER CULL FRONT LINE – THURSDAY 10 SEPTEMBER 2020

What a relief. After the horrendous gap from the night before, the trail cameras showed the garden badgers were in fine form last night.

So why do I have to remember the images from last year of a pile of dead badgers wrapped in plastic bags and slung in a corner of a building waiting to be incinerated?

I guess it’s because last night, while ‘my’ badgers were happily feeding, hundreds will have been slaughtered. Like so many others, I think I’ll scream if I hear George Eustice say ‘no-one wants to continue the cull of a protected species indefinitely’ one more time.

And the use of baseless data to say that the badger cull is ‘working’ is manipulative in the extreme.

This Government may think badgers are expendable but as wonderful ecosystem engineers that have been part and parcel of this landscape for over 60,000 years, badgers deserve so much better than this pointless slaughter.
