Dead badgers found in #Wiltshire, UK. As one of the dead is a cub from this year, it’s highly likely that this is a family of badgers that have been drawn into a field using peanuts at bait points, then shot with a high powered rifle. The photograph was taken at 6pm, meaning that they had been lying there all day. The government and the NFU tell us that cattle farmers have to kill badgers to contain a disease, yet every day across the cull zones we see blatant breaches of basic bio security.
Please write to your MP as a matter of urgency and ask why are badgers being killed when bTB hasn’t lowered in any of the cull zones and why is the cull not being properly monitored for humaneness or bio security?
We do need help in the fields, if you live in or near Wiltshire drop us a PM if you can help, if you live further afield please contact:
We can stop ugly scenes like this from occurring, but we can only do that with your help.
Same happening in #Gloucestershire 😡
