total “badger control costs” for the year

“The scale of the rollout is huge,” Prof Woodroffe told BBC News. “Farmers will be required to kill almost 10,000 badgers at a minimum before the end of November – and yet the government has released no evidence that farmer-led culling is helping to control cattle TB.

What is Team Badger

Team Badger is a coalition of national, local and grassroots animal and wildlife welfare organisations representing millions of compassionate citizens. We reject the government’s policy of badger culling as unsound, unscientific and unacceptable.

We believe the most effective and legitimate way to oppose the shooting of badgers is through peaceful and legal protest supported by a reasoned argument, scientific facts and legal challenge. We are convinced that the long-term control of tuberculosis in cattle can be achieved by the comprehensive application of a range of measures without resorting to the culling of wildlife.

Simon Kings Petition

End the badger cull instead of expanding to new areas

Since 2013, thousands of badgers have been killed in a Government cull attempting to control bovine TB. Against scientific advice & before a 4 year trial has completed, the government is now expanding the cull to new counties – tens of thousands of healthy badgers could be killed.

Experts in disease control and animal welfare agree that pilot badger culls have proven both ineffective and inhumane. Shooting badgers is also expensive, costing tax-payers some £5,000 per animal. Bovine TB is a serious problem but killing badgers is not the solution, and could actually make the situation worse. It is a costly distraction from an effective solution incorporating vaccination, increased cattle movement control measures and improved testing.

Simon King OBE

Deadline: 25 February 2017All petitions run for 6 months
