Badger snippets

Some recent news from Pembrokeshire Against The Cull.

Bovine TB rate dropping - without a cull!
DEFRA have published statistics for incidence of bovine TB in Wales up to the end of September 2010. These continue to show the incidence is declining overall in Wales. An estimated projection shows a drop of approximately 29% on 2009. But most importantly, the drop is even more pronounced in Dyfed - the area that contains the Intensive Action Area where there was a 34.8% reduction in 2010! This shows that a cull is unnecessary, as well as cruel and unscientific.

BBC blog comments
The BBC's Nature UK blog asked for views on culling. Have a look at some of the comments!
