Badger at Longleat


Couldn’t see any Lion signs though. (This is very close to the Safari Park.)

It’s also close to a Badger Cull area (the government is paying farmers to shoot badgers with rifles in the hope of a 15% reduction in Tuberculosis in cows).

    Good news –
    Badger cull: government abandons national roll-out plans
    Damning independent report finds shoots were not sufficiently effective or humane

    The joke going round is that the Tory/Lib Dem coalition is targeting every animal beginning with “B” – badgers, buzzards [the government was slated in 2012 after proposing to look for ways of stopping the birds of prey gobbling up pheasants] and now beavers have all come within its sights.
