Badger Cull Yes Or No?

Well if we are worried about the environment why not just let mother nature take care of it. If people really want to help then they can limit their own population.

Badgers have no natural predators so their population has expanded to such an extent they are harming the ecosystem by over-consumption of their prey animals. A cull seems justified on environmental grounds even without the risk of them spreading TB.

Badger Cull Yes Or No?

a BIG YES, where there are badgers there is bovine tb, its a fact, in areas of the uk with zero badger population, there is no bovine tb, ( country file programme on bbc ) any tb outbreaks in normally clear areas are traced to cattle being moved from one area to another, but now no livestock dairy or beef can be moved without a tb test, the farmers all know and all agree , badgers equal tb in their livestock, yes badgers look cute to us city folk, let the countryside be managed by the people best suited to manage it, ( ie farmers and country folk ) after all they don't want badgers eliminated, but culled and managed properly where they wont spread any diseases, of course lots of people wont agree with me or the farmers, BUT would the same people pay £5.00 for a pint of milk if we had no dairy herds, or £30.00 for a tiny block of cheese, the farmers have it hard enough as it is, so I say let the farmers manage the countryside, ,

No. And if they try to pull that round my way, I will stalk and kill the hunters during the night as they operate...And they'll never know what happened. I also live near a piggery, so the bodies will never, ever be found either.

Badger Cull Yes Or No?

No, the reason badgers are destroying woodland is because we destroyed their home. We need to create more land just for them. I know it's cliche to say but humans have done more damage than any badger. We need to work out a way to let them live without upsetting the balance of nature. Leave our cute little monocrome friends alone!

This badger cull is a waste of time and resources. It is also inhumane, as free shooting of badgers has not been tried before, they are usually cage trapped first, and some badgers may suffer a slow death.

It will be a big disappointment for dairy farmers relying on this to solve their problems. Bovine TB is already coming down owing to better biosecurity and restrictions and until there is a cattle vaccine this is the most effective route.
