There are very few things in life that gives more pleasure than a sett of badgers at play in total ease and comfort in their surroundings. Not just is it so satisfying visually, but after an hour or so watching them you come to the decision that it is just down right good for the soul.
I am sure that if Defra and Mr Own Patterson had taken the time to study badger behaviour carefully their go ahead for the hair brained badger cull would never have gone ahead.
As I have said before, it is appeasing a few at the expense of the masses. By shooting, or now they are even talking about gassing these adorable creatures, TB in cattle will still be just as prevalent after the cull as it was before unless cattle movements are more tightly monitored, but it seems to me the fall guy yet again is the old black and white.
Please watch my short film of badgers frolicking in the woods.
