Wildlife News: Badgers are said to be urgently seeking legal advice over the government’s proposed cull in parts of Gloucestershire and Somerset.

The government says action is needed to help combat cattle TB, which costs the UK more than £100m per year.

“Badgers are clearly not responsible for cattle TB,” said Melinda Mustelidae, the solicitor speaking on behalf of the badgers. “It’s obviously the fault of the cattle, not my clients – this is a serious case of discrimination by the government.”

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs argues that bovine TB is taking a terrible toll on farmers and rural communities, and action is needed now. “Country folk don’t even have the energy to shoot townies looks of disdain these days,” said a DEFRA spokesman.

The badgers newly appointed PR consultant, Max Clifford, says the the proposed cull directly affects us all. “First they came for the badgers, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a badger. Then they came for the foxes, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a fox.”

“Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
