Badgers: To cull or vaccinate?

Neither the governments of England nor Wales seem to know what to make of the science, advice and opinion at their fingertips surrounding the culling of badgers. What’s more, the vaccination of badgers against TB seems to be overlooked as an alternative in many discussions. Want to make your own mind up? Check out this month’s BBC Wildlife Magazine for a news piece by Julian Rollins on culling plans in England, illustrated by one of my shots from my recent Badger vaccination shoot with BBC Wildlife in Gloucestershire. Be sure to get next month’s issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine to see the whole special investigation feature on Fera’s Badger Vaccine Deployment Project.
