Save Essex’s Badgers from Culling
We, the undersigned, call on Essex County Council to prohibit the culling of badgers on council-owned land and invest in vaccination programmes locally. We ask this because we believe culling to be inhumane, inefficient and unscientific.  We also require the relevant Cabinet Member to present this evidence at a public meeting of the Policy and Scrutiny Committee should there be insufficient signatories for this petition to be discussed and debated at a Full Council meeting.
