Fantastic News - Badger cull reprieval in Welsh stronghold

Fantastic news. The Welsh Assembly has abandoned the coalition government's proposals for a Badger cull in Wales and have decided to go ahead with a vaccination programme instead. Let's hope that this attitude is followed through in England. Up to a fifth of the UK population actually dies on the roads as it is, so we can do without any additional carnage.

Years of scientific research has found that no benefit can come from culling Badgers - all it does is move the problem and spread the disease even more widely as infected animals are forced to retreat and relocate. All cattle should be vaccinated, despite the cost to farming - any costs incurred should be added and incorporated into what the supermarkets pay and eventually shared by the consumer. Badgers should be left in peace
