Pro-badger activists slam cull extension

Wednesday 24th August 2016

ANIMAL rights campaigners condemned reports yesterday that ministers are planning to extend the badger cull.

Killing badgers does not effectively eradicate bovine tuberculosis, animal rights protesters argue.

“It’s more expensive to cull. It’s more inhumane to cull. It doesn’t sort out the problem even if you do it properly,” said RSPCA head of public affairs David Bowles.

Badger Trust chairman Peter Martin said: “The badger is being used as a scapegoat for failures in the modern intensive livestock industry.”

Instead of culling, a vaccine for cattle should be a priority, said Paul Wilkinson of The Wildlife Trust, pointing to evidence that the disease is mainly spread through cow-to-cow contact.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) refused to confirm or deny reports that culling would be extended to south Devon, north Devon, north Cornwall, west Dorset and south Hertfordshire despite Devon farmer Tony Francis telling the BBC he’d signed up to one of the new cull zones.
