    Badger Cull ~ Please Read

    Kindly permitted to copy here by Norseman

    Plans have been announced by the Environment Secretary, Caroline Spelman [ remember her ? She was behind the Sell the Forests fiasco ] to allow badgers in certain areas to be culled up to 70% to "prevent" the spread of TB to cattle. The science is highly dubious and opposed by animal welfare organisations and wildlife groups, including many leading scientists. The cull is to be done by "specially trained" marksmen i.e. gun-nuts ! This is a very emotive subject, so expect the possibility of "violent disorder" if attempts are made by animal rights groups to prevent this wholesale murder. [Guess who's side I'm on !] The game was given away yesterday when it was revealed that a vaccine was available but I guess a bullet is cheaper than a vaccine shot ! David Attenborough [ a living god !] has said that all this will do is spread out the badger's territory into virgin areas.
    This government never learns, it seems. I feel a petition coming on
