Despite being a "protected species", the badger is one of Ireland's most persecuted creatures. A major killer of this gentle and social animal is the Department of Agriculture. Under licence from the National Parks and Wildlife Service, the Department has cruelly snared tens of thousands of badgers to date in a so-called TB-eradication scheme that has been slammed as "slaughter masquerading as science".
Join our appeal to the Irish Government to stop this cruel assault on the badger species. Click on Campaigns at www.banbloodsports.com for urgent action alerts. Thank you.
