Welsh Government to Cull Badgers April 9, 2008

I notice that as always the government doesn’t pay attention to what it’s own people say.

I have a particular interest in this story as I am Welsh — but even so I suppose it’s stupid of me to think my own kindred government would be any different to the English.

I just don’t get some people, if a 10 year study has been completed and proven that a badger cull would not have an effect on controlling TB in cattle, and many animal organisations back this same study, why then do the governments still choose to go ahead with a cull?!

The main story about this can be read here on politics.co.uk

Looks like a classic case of “blame someone else”. The TB problems are no-doubt due to overly intensive and stressful farming.

I completely agree about the blame someone else factor … that’s what most governments are best at I think.

It’s just a shame that not enough of the public realise how poorly a-lot of farmers still go about protecting their animals from infection in today’s world.

I’m sure the big supermarkets can take some of the blame as-well … bring cheap meat to the market, and forcing farmers to product for them or go bust….
