Spare badgers the pain of TB; Yousay IN YOUR OPINION...

I CAN NEVER understand why people who seem to be genuine badger-lovers are so determined to keep the terrible disease of bovine TB in the badger family.

The cows are taken out before the pain sets in. But the poor badger has to live through it to the bitter end.

I would have thought that to eradicate this disease from the badger family would have been the prime target of all badger-lovers.

Vaccination is out of the question - apart from the fact that where it has already been tried at a cost of PS640 per badger, I believe only around 10%, something like two in 18, have been found for their second injection.
