People go to prison in the UK for disturbing Badgers and yet the British Government is allowed to kill them in order to control bovine TB… this probably sounds like a good idea if you think domestic-cows more important that wild-animals… but what there is no evidence to suggest it will do any good? And even some to suggest it will be counter-productive?
It makes no sense whatsoever, but it is nevertheless true.
The Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, Sir David King, thinks a cull of badgers in England should be undertaken in order to control bovine TB in cattle.
This advice goes against the conclusions of the Government’s own ten-year study by the Independent Scientific Group. Apparently, when they culled badgers in Irish Republic bovine TB went up and in Northern Ireland, where there was no cull, bovine TB went down.
So the Government’s appointed independent scientists took ten years to conclude that there is no scientific evidence to support a cull and yet the Welsh Assembly decided to carry out a cull anyway.

And there is a ton of additional information, on the RSPCA site no less.
