Badgers to be culled in five new areas of England

Posted on the 23rd August 2016

Animal Aid is saddened by reports that this year’s badger cull will include five new cull zones (South Devon, North Devon, North Cornwall, West Dorset, and South Herefordshire). The badger cull is being pushed by the dairy industry, but it is the industry’s own farming practices that drive the spread of bovine TB. Dairy cows are subjected to a relentless cycle of exploitation and suffering, and increasingly intensive farming methods play a key role in the spread of TB. The previous badger culls have proven to be futile and inhumane, and we call on the government to immediately end these cruel and pointless culls.

How can you help stop the badger cull?
