Well done Herts & Middlesex Badger Group , the bypassing of all the Scientific experts advice to Owen Paterson and the NFU. That this killing exercise of Badgers is not the way forward to the long term eradication of Bovine TB is appalling. You do not cure an infectious disease in cattle or wildlife with a BULLET. It is time that this failed, controversial and costly exercise of Government was halted. It can be effectively replaced by a humane, science based Vaccination programme. Give your support to this rally in St Albans on SAT. March 1st.

I absolutely agree. This cruel farce, led by Paterson and the NFU, should never have begun in the first place. Not only did the so-called "cull" fail in its objectives but it has been beset by sheer dishonesty, by hiding information from government as well as public on the part of Paterson and Defra. And public protests have been completely ignored. Just as important, farmers have been led astray into thinking bullets could cure an infectious disease.
