Old Mister Brock shot

Bovine tuberculosis

It’s not black and white


n.b. Mass slaughter of badgers to inhibit spread of Bovine TB is a nonsense. Of 89 badger carcasses examined only 3.8% were infected with the illness.

There is no justification for the continuing programme of mass slaughter of badgers (an otherwise protected species) being carried out in parts of the UK in a vain attempt to reduce infection in dairy cattle.

The DEFRA official website is currently “Closed for updates”, but here is the link to the link to The Badger Trust charity for its stance on the matter.
