Motion carried to refuse badger cull in the Forest of Dean

The motion was agreed last night at the full council meeting on the 27th September 2012 to refuse a badger cull in the Forest of Dean.
Release Date: Sep 28, 2012

“That this Council recognises that TB in cattle is a terrible disease which needs eradicating. It believes that the government should work in a sustainable way to this end. The Council does not, however, believe that a badger cull will support this objective and will therefore, not allow badgers to be culled on land which the Forest of Dean District Council owns, manages or controls.
The Forest of Dean District Council must make public safety and the care of our wildlife a priority and to this end this council must endeavour to make contact with all other land owners within its boundary to request that they refuse any culling of badgers on their land”.
