BADGERS are already under pressure from baiting with dogs, illegal trapping and road kill, but the biggest threat of all is from the dairy industry.

Badger culling cannot meaningfully contribute to the control of bovine TB.

The surest way to save badgers is to stop buying meat and dairy. You will no longer play a part in cows suffering, it is healthier and you will be protecting the environment.
