Labour wrong about badgers

Share this article

I SEE that if Labour are elected to power Ed Miliband will stop the cull of badgers which will allow TB to continue in our cattle for many more years and costing this country millions every year.

In the first half of my life we did not have badgers in our area and we had lots of ground nesting birds and hedgehogs. Since badgers came into this area, we have lost all of them. I miss seeing them and hear them sing, also the badgers have killed many of our laying hens. In Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and parts of England where culling has taken place it has greatly reduced TB.

Personally I only ever see a badger at night in the car headlights and there’s not much fun in that.
