Fox hunting and badger cull – toxic issues


The public, along with new Conservative MPs, are disappointed with the apparent prioritising of a return to blood sports in the early days of a new administration. It looks as if both fox hunting and badger culling are becoming toxic issues for this Government.

Dr Iain McGill, Veterinary Surgeon, BSc (Hons), BVetMed, MRCVS, who previously exposed the Government’s BSE cover up, has led the call for vets objection to the badger cull as it has no chance of achieving its aims. He has called on the BVA (British Veterinary Association) to withdraw their support. 

The BVA have already, rightly, condemned the free shooting of badgers as inhumane, and free shooting is now exactly what George Eustice is proffering as a policy, in a desperate attempt to turn the cull around from the tragic mess it has created.
