    This is absolutely disgusting, I am so glad I don't live near so can't hear the guns going off. It must be so terrifying for them. God help them.

    It is so wrong and so sick. Slaughter for slaughters sake.

    Ive a feeling this was a false alarm as Ive not heard anything more, loads of sabs are out in the cull zones so im sure it would have been verified. Unfortunately everyone is saying the killing is likely to begin tonight...praying with all my heart this turns out to be another false alarm.

    I do hope this has been a false alarm but sadly if they are hell bent on carrying out this despicable act it is going to happen eventually :(

    Its heartbreaking, I cant believe its come to this:( Apparently there are 500 people out in each of the cull zones trying to stop the cull.

    God lets hope they succeed.

    This is so disgusting. This encourages those SICK idiots out there who harm puppies/kittens and other animals to capture and torture and kill, they don't realise it won't just be licensed people eliminating them, I don't agree with it at all and already there's badgers behind found harmed/hurt and shot by air rifles!! Sicks bl--dy b@stards!

    So mad :cursing:

    Sounds as though badgers were being killed in several places in Somerset last night, there were reports of shots heard all around Stogumber AND.... DOGS!!

    there were reports of a badger covered in blood running across a field!


    how can this ever be 'humane'?:( hell has been unleashed on these poor innocent creatures.





    Here you are Jaycee >> http://www.petforums.co.uk/general-chat/322050-badger-found-dying-shot-between-eyes.html

    They don't care Cheryl. They are all lacking of a moral conscience...they are all wildlife criminals!

    I can't think about this, it makes me feel sick to think what those poor frightened creatures must be going through. Their world has been turned upside down :( Some humans are despicable.

    I have been following the badger cull on facebook, but read today that there is going to be a grey squirrel cull at Lizard point, by trapping, shooting and poisoning:eek:
    It is so that RED squirrels can be reintroduced, and says red and grey cant live together due to squirrel pox in the greys

    I hate stuff like this. Near me (Epping Forest) they're about to do a cull of Red Deer because they're endangering motorists. You know what? I don't care. Red Deer were in these forests long before WE built the roads through. Humans have an uncanny way of just assuming Earth is ours, when it's not; it's every living creatures. How can we say 'Oh, we're keeping deer numbers level so humans aren't affected'?

    It makes me SO mad. Drive more carefully. If you're worried about deer, don't take that route through the forest.

    It's the same with these badgers. Because WE want to eat cows, and, therefore, have to farm them, it's the native creatures who suffer. It's horrible, misguided, and it's probably not even going to have the affect the farmers/government want. :crying:
