Badgers in Parliament
This is supposed to be the ‘listening government’ and it has shown before on matters such as selling of the National Forests that it will change course when confronted by overwhelming public opinion. On circuses, the Government bowed to the will of both the people and the great majority of Parliamentarians when it agreed to move towards a total ban on the use of wild animals in circuses by 2015.
Now it has the opportunity to jettison a policy which makes no sense, risks making the problem worse, and which is rejected by the scientific community and the public alike.
If you haven’t signed the petition then please do so and spread the word.
Yes, let’s do all we can to eradicate Bovine TB but not at the expense of badgers lives and logic.
