Crooked cattle farmers

The Welsh Assembly Government has used every dirty trick in the book it push badger killing through - ignoring science, ignoring the results of consultations, publishing false information. Read previous posts with the badgers label for details. The truth is that TB was falling due to stricter measures being imposed on farmers and transport. Guess what? Some farmers have been flouting these regulations and defrauding the public in order to increase their profits. The more this has been investigated, the more widespread the fraud has been found to have spread. The result is an increase in TB - not caused by badgers, but selfish and cruel cattle farmers. Read about it here, and keep an eye on the Badger Trust website. When politicians come to your door, make sure tell them what you think of them if they support killing badgers.

Their site includes some happy endings. Ways you can help (from their site):
