Badgers

Quite a crowd of Badgers on our Badger Watch the other evening. Or more correctly a Cete of Badgers. After the adults disappeared to forage we were left watching these young ones playing. We had to stifle a few laughs at times.

Against all odds

It’s a shame but it does happen. This dead Badger was seen on an evening drive recently. You would think they had enough to contend with at the moment without being hit by cars been driven far too fast on our country lanes.

I’m Badgering Nobody

One good thing about the current government is they will listen to majorities.  If 100,000 signatures are collected in response to particular subjects they do get debated in the House of Commons.

One bad thing about the current government is they do not listen to common sense. Natural England has issued the first Badger Cull licence this week. What an ill conceived idea based on bad science that will mean the death of hundreds if not thousands of healthy mammals with no bettering of the bovine TB situation. As I’ve said many times before I don’t coax others to the signing of petitions – I’ll leave it to individual choice. I just can’t help thinking I would be responsible for letting this cull proceed if I didn’t raise my hand in objection. There are currently half of the number of signatures required on the petition.

I take customers on Badger Watches quite often through the summer months although I don’t advertise the fact. I find them charming creatures that fill an important niche. If you’re interested in coming along on one give me a shout … while there’s still some to watch!
