A peaceful protest against the Government’s badger cull will take place through the streets of St Albans tomorrow.

Organised by Chris Wood from Herts and Middlesex Badger Group and supported by Care for the Wild and the Badger Trust, the event invites people to walk from The Ye Olde Fighting Cock in Abbey Mill Lane through the city centre at 12.30pm.

St Albans & Harpenden Review:

Speakers will include leading anti-cull spokesperson Dominic Dyer, CEO of Badger Trust and Policy Advisor for Care for the Wild, St Albans MP Anne Main and Simon Cowell from Animal Aid.

Mr Dyer said: "I’ve worked in the agriculture and food industry for most of my career, and this is the worst agricultural policy I’ve seen in 30 years.

"I’m sympathetic to farmers, but culling badgers simply won’t work.

"Ordinary people from around the country have come out to protest against this barbaric cull, and we’re looking forward to seeing many of them come to St Albans.

"The time has come to stop the cull once and for all."

You will have all been aware recently from Press and TV of the recent failed and inhumane Badger cull, where many badgers were shot and took some while to die. This is your chance on this March to make your feelings known against any further Badger killing . A chance to let your mp's know that Science and vaccination is the only acceptable way forward. Dominic Dyer CEO of the Badger Trust is worth Listening to. So try and be there in good Voice. Your support is appreciated.
