Breaking news! The Environment Minister has just announced that the Government will continue its failed badger cull in Somerset and Gloucestershire but will not extend the killing into 10 new areas as had been threatened.
While the continuation of the culls is a crushing blow, we must see a victory in the news that the cull will not roll out as this news marks a significant U-turn for the government and may mean that Defra are finally listening to the strong feelings of the public, their MPs and the scientific evidence that the culls were ineffective and inhumane.
Thank you for all your hard work in stopping the roll out of these culls!
Join us in thanking those MPs across all political parties who stood up and said ‘No’ to the culls!
