Today, the Stroud-based green energy supplier, Ecotricity, has pledged its support to Team Badger and spoken out strongly against the cull. Dale Vince, Ecotricity founder, said: ‘I fully support Team Badger in their efforts in getting this hideous cull stopped. It’s worth considering that if we truly have to virtually wipe out a species like the Badger just to produce milk from cows, then maybe we should be questioning the basis for the dairy industry itself. After all, we don’t need cows milk to live.’
Dale’s words echo those of Animal Aid’s Kate Fowler, who addressed the 5,000-strong rally in London on Saturday. She said: ‘For the sake of badgers, we must stop this cull, but for the sake of both cows and badgers, we must also boycott milk’. Kate’s speech can be read here.
Additionally, two new films have been released this week in support of badgers: Can the Carrot was created by The Badger Trust, while Get Off My Badger was created by The Artful Badger, and features Brian May, Slash (Guns N Roses), Sir David Attenborough, Shara Nelson (Massive Attack), Sam & The Womp, Sonny Green and Kerry Ellis.
The petition is fast approaching 250,000 signatures.
