Parliament chooses humane approach for badgers Kimberly Paxton image

Good news for British badgers!  By a majority of 119, MPs voted through the following motion this afternoon.

“That this House notes the e-petition on the planned badger cull, which has gathered more than 150,000 signatures; and calls on the Government to stop the cull and implement the more sustainable and humane solution of both a vaccination programme for badgers and cattle, along with improved testing and biosecurity.”

That seems a very good outcome. Thank you to our MPs!
