They are even dafter than I feared
I WAS almost delighted to hear Owen Paterson reaffirm that badger culls will happen in early summer and David Heath also said so at the Oxford Farming Conference. So they are even dafter than I'd feared.
Not surprising since the last full-scale debates in Parliament were well-meaning but spectacularly ill-informed.
Sadly, the proposed pilot badger culls/vaccinations are almost entirely based on the highly selective pseudoscientific findings of the RBCT or Krebs culling trial with after-effects apparently even in 2011, six years after the cull ended, removing a mere 311 TB badgers from reactive areas and 1,204 from proactive widespread culls.
That's 1,515 out of 11,000 culled in an area of 1,900sqkm.
