Badger Cull in England

A cull of Badgers in the west of England is likely to go ahead within the next few weeks, ostensibly to control bovine tuberculosis (TB). Whilst one can sympathise with farmers whose cattle are thus affected, informed scientific opinion seems to suggest that culling is only likely to make matters worse, and further the spread of the disease. Watch this video for more information:

Brian May, guitarist with rock group 'Queen', has created a petition against the cull, and there is another one in the sidebar of this blog. If anyone reading this (all two of you!), could take a minute of your time to sign one or both petitions, it would be much appreciated, and might even do some good. Thanks for your time.
