If any of us mortals failed so miserably to meet our own stated goals we would never be given a second chance. But it seems that DEFRA, with the Governments blessing and financial support can carry on massacring badgers despite.
NOT ACHIEVING ANY TARGETS!
MOVING THE GOALPOSTS!
FLYING IN THE FACE OF INDEPENDENT SCIENTIFIC ADVICE!
How is it that DEFRA can ignore laws which state it is illegal to take, Injure or kill a badger?
The whole thing is a joke and typifies how we approach animal welfare when it “may” threaten money-making enterprises.
Not able to shoot in a straight line, the teams of so-called experts resorted to caging the animals first and then shooting the helpless creatures!
Because targets were not met, DEFRA’s own scientific evidence indicates that the risk of spreading TB among the bovine herds in the cull areas has been increased!
So instead of trapping these poor animals in cages and blasting them to pieces, they could have trapped and inoculated them in the first place!
What a wast of innocent animal lives and tax payers money. and what a terrible reflection on our country.
Now is the time to stop the slaughter so please;
Write to your local MP and ask them to sign the Early day motion 299
