We now have a number (estimate) for the number of badgers that are going to be shot in Gloucestershire. 5000. Yes, 5000 badgers just in Summer 2013. This comes with the news that the Government will be paying policing costs for the badger cull, so the police will not be out of pocket. I wonder how much this will cost? Apparently, just policing the cull for 4 years will cost an estimated £4 million alone. For more on this information see here. http://www.southwestbusiness.co.uk/news/18032013082247-government-to-pay-cost-of-policing-badger-cull-in-gloucestershire/In other, lighter news, this website has been featured on peta2's blog. Any publicity is good publicity right?
Things seem to have gone quiet on the campaign but I think we will need to get back up and running soon, so let me know any next steps you think of.
While I'm here, I thought I might mention a peaceful protest walk in Highnam Woods, Gloucestershire on the 1st April 2013. Please remember this is a PEACEFUL protest.
On that note, here is a cute picture of a badger waving to you all.
