Writing To Further Animal Welfare

The badger cull has now been postponed until next summer, you can read about the details of the postponement on the DEFRA website but how can we find a solution to the long-term problem?

In my recent post “An argument for saving badgers” some ideas were put forward but it ignored the option of vaccinating the susceptible badger population. Although this is not a short-term solution within ten years it could significantly reduce cross infection between badgers and bovine. It could also provide jobs for hundreds of people in the countryside. Have a read of this article from DEFRA where they explain the process and the availability of training courses.

Before this short reprieve period runs out we need to find an alternative, WTFAW will be looking at ways of promoting this option and others but everybody who cares about animal welfare needs to get involved.

Please share your views and ideas and follow the WTFAW projects posts to see what you can do!
