Indiscriminate badger cull proposed for Northern Ireland


An indiscriminate badger cull has been proposed for Northern Ireland. Free-roaming badgers will be shot as they forage for food at night. Local populations will be decimated. Four of every five badgers shot will not have TB and 1000s of healthy badgers will be killed.



The badger group has joined with Ulster Wildlife and the USPCA to oppose this cull.
