MPs to debate and vote on Thursday 25th October

Ask your MP to vote against the badger cull on Thursday 25th October.

The Stop the Cull e-petition has amassed more than 159,000 signatures to protect badgers.

In a recent letter, more than 30 top scientists called on the government to reconsider its strategy, describing the current plans as a "costly distraction."

Killing many thousands of badgers will not eradicate bovine tuberculosis. It won’t help cows. It won’t help farmers. But it will cause great suffering to badgers and could devastate local populations.

Ask your MP to vote against the cull.
