To my dying day I will never be able to forgive successive Conservative governments over the last few years for licensing the brutal killing of tens of thousands of these beautiful innocent native creatures. Right now, the slaughter is STILL going on. All our efforts to stop it have been in vain. British dairy farmers are STILL wrestling with the scourge of bovine TB in their herds, underlining the truth, now undeniable, that badger culling has been completely ineffective as a way of controlling the disease in cows. It has been a tragic mistake all along, the REAL reservoir of infection now known to be infected and infectious individuals within the cattle herd.
Time to STOP the senseless killing. But the Government is unable to admit to this terrible mistake. So the horror goes on. It’s actually criminal.
