15th October 2012
The Badger Protection League (BPL) is supporting the Badger Night Walkers who are arranging a peaceful outdoor meeting on Tuesday 16th October at 5.30 p.m. This is to voice their feelings against the badger cull which is due to start soon. The aim is to show the strength of feeling even before the first badger is shot. Despite 30 eminent scientists, including Lord John Krebs, calling for a halt to this ill-conceived cull due to the very real possibility that it will make matter worse, the government continues to move towards the slaughter of thousands of healthy badgers.
Please support this meeting, bring high viz jackets, warm waterproof clothing and a strong torch, those wishing to will be guided on public footpaths.
Location for meeting of Badgers Night Walkers on Tuesday, 16th October 2012 at 5.30pm will be:-
