Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

Email or write to WAG ( or Elin Jones ( at the Welsh Assembley to ask them to stop the badger slaughter in Wales. DON'T PUNISH BADGERS FOR FARMERS' FAILINGS.

Badgers are harmless, loved, unique and secretive. Yet they face illegal trapping, baiting with dogs and 50,000 die on the roads each yearin Britain. Now they face their biggest threat yet, the Welsh dairy industry.Badgers are accused by farmers of being the main culprits in spreading TB. The real culprits are farming practices so intense that dairy cows face numerous infections and rarely survive beyond five years old. TB tests are often inaccurate, allowing disease carriers to reinfect their herd or to be transported around the UK, infecting new herds.

The Wesh Assembley has agreed to a "cull", ignoring the 10 year study by top scientists which established that badger "culling" will not control TB in cattle. It means thousands of badgers will be cruelly killed to no purpose - other than mollifying farmers who refuse to change their ways. Badgers could be wiped from certain areas of wales in a slaughter that may last until the 2030s. And if a Tory goverment get's into power this election they will make the "cull" a country wide slaughter.
