Our views on Defra's plans for the badger cull
This submission has been developed by The Wildlife Trusts in response to Defra’s consultation entitled ‘Bovine TB: Supplementary badger disease control’.
Much of the evidence used in the rationale for the proposal is unclear. In our response, The Wildlife Trusts highlight where the presentation of the evidence is flawed. We want the Government to rethink the prioritisation of culling over increasing efforts to establish a comprehensive vaccination scheme.
The consultation closed on Friday 10th February. You can find the consultation here.
