badger cull campaigners to join protest event this evening
of protesters from across the Burnham-On-Sea
area who are opposed to the cull of badgers across the west
country will be joining a special protest walk this evening
Huntspill based Secretworld and the Badger Protection League (BPL)
are supporting the peaceful protest, called the 'Badger Night
Walk', in Dunster.
Kidner, founder of Secretworld and a spokesperson for the Badger
Protection League, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We have every
sympathy for farmers experiencing a Bovine TB breakdown in their
cattle, but they are being led up the garden path. This is an
experiment on killing badgers based on no science, with no safety
buffers for humans or animals either near to or on public footpaths."
are also no clear numbers of badgers to be killed and no knowledge
of the effects of the spread of Bovine TB in cattle. Already the
government has spent another £4.7 million of our, the taxpayers,
money on a purely political plan of carnage. We are all joining
together to say no to badger culling."
added that those planning to attend tonight's event should bring
high-viz jackets, warm waterproof clothing and a strong torch.
The event will begin at 5.30pm in the car park off Dunster Steep,
Dunster TA24 6SE.
