badgers

  • The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country are joining other Wildlife Trusts in calling for the Government to drop badger culling from its proposed strategy to tackle bovineTB in England.

  • As the first shots of the badger cull are reported, The Wildlife Trusts re-state deep regret that Government is driving forward with a culling policy.

  • The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country are firmly opposed to the proposed badger cull due to commence 1 June.

  • The Wildlife Trust wrote to Members of Parliament asking them to oppose a licensed badger cull in England last year. For over 15 years the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country has been raising concerns about badger culling, and urging proper investment in alternatives such as vaccination, better biosecurity and accurate testing procedures. These are the most effective means to tackle bovine TB and the best options for badgers and for UK farmers.
