Badger fight goes on-line

The RSPCA has taken the campaign against the badger cull in North Pembrokeshire on-line with a new page on its 'give animals a voice' site here.

On the site they pose the question: 'Is a cull of one species ever justified to stop the spread of disease to other animals? If so, under what circumstances?'

They say: Badgers are under threat in Wales as the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) has given the green light to a badger cull. The cull is part of a strategy to tackle bovine tuberculosis (TB) in cattle.

The Minister for Rural Affairs, Elin Jones, has announced that a pilot cull will take place in an area of North Pembrokeshire, as well as parts of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.

The RSPCA believes that this cruel cull is unnecessary and that other measures should be tried first, before badgers are simply killed.

There is a petition and a request to write to your Assembly Member if you live in Wales. Please note though, if you live in South Wales West and are opposed to the cull then I am already on your side.

Update: Another website is up and running as well called Save the Badger.
Great way to undermine your party leader and your rural vote ahead of Conference Peter.
What utter nonsense. There is no party policy on this. Kirsty and I take a different view but that is our right and it is healthy to debate these issues. As for our rural vote most people in rural areas are against this cull including some farmers.
let's all think the same and say the same illtyd luke..individual freedom of speech down the toilet hole.
It is healthy to debate these issues especially as the Welsh Assembly members have been anti-democratic in this case and have not followed public opinion. Everybody in rural areas (except farmers) is against cull.
