Minister John Griffiths announced that Wales will not kill badgers as part of its policy to tackle cattle bTB. Instead Wales is implementing a policy of vaccinating badgers. He says: “This is the right thing to do and the right course of action.”
Viva! congratulated Mr Griffiths for his political strength and not being bullied into persecuting Welsh wildlife because of the failings of farmers.
We also want to say thank you to you, as without the constant public pressure this decision could have been very different.
Almost four years ago Viva! held the first national rally for badgers outside the Welsh Assembly.
We’ve saved badgers together – thank you!
