Badger

By striker1998  
Sutch lovely animals. Not that I want to get political about this but I'm sure there has to be a different way that they can manage the Badger problem that the farmers are having other than the culling that is proposed Sad Very rarely do you get to see them alive in the wild but more offten you'll see them dead at the side of the road Sad Ok I was lucky to get this picture of a captive one at the British Wildlife Centre at Lingfield. They're doing a great job there of trying to educate people about our native animals.

Thank You for having a look at this picture & sorry about my little rant Wink
Regards
Richard

There is a vaccine available to farmers for the cattle.........but I guess it's cheaper and feeds the blood lust of man to kill..............my uncle had a dairy farm, never ever did he have a case of TB in his herd...........it was a big herd...........I used to milk em...........GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Nice shot Richard, I joined Gwent Badger Group in 1991 and the current policy has been tried before and failed as it will this time,

A great capture, We saw the news on Sky today about them wanting to cull 70% of them . I agree surely there is another solution to the problem.

Great shot, focus spot on. I do sometimes wonder if cattle give badgers TB and not the other way round. Are we going to push badgers to the brink of extinction and then spend a fortune trying to re-establish them in the future.
