Once again the Government has gone back on its word.

We were told of its commitment to phase out badger culling in favour of badger and cattle TB vaccinations.

In reality they are increasing to 11 new areas of England.

Up to 62,000 badgers could be killed by the end of 2020.

So much for badgers being a protected species.

It is no longer badger control but annihilation of the poor creatures.

The way humans on this planet treat both domestic and wild animals in their use for food, clothing, entertainment and experiments is appalling.

Don’t let us lose one of Britain’s favourite wild mammals.

Stop the cull.
