The government’s own statistics prove that cattle measures are working in Dorset.
From 2012 – 2014 the number of Dorset cattle slaughtered due to bTB fell by 37.25%.
The NFU are claiming that bTB in Dorset has risen more than anywhere else in the country. Where do they get this from? Is it their ‘anecdotal evidence’ again? It’s certainly not backed by Government stats.
Please, if you care about our badgers, write to your MP and contact Natural England TODAY. Ask them why they want to roll out a cull which has proved to be cruel, costly, unpopular and just doesn’t work!
