Ireland's Bloody Shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|jonathan|1370281688|
Few Irish people have shown concern for the wanton slaughter of thousands of Badgers in Ireland. the Irish Wildlife Trust has provided the information. It is up to other environmental organisations to help the IWT to highlight this scandal. Below please find a useful link. The recent culll begun in England has brought out protestors. It is time for Irish ENGOS to respond. Please study the details provided by the IWT and support their efforts. 
The Irish mainstream media have been remiss satisfying the aspirations of vested interests. it is not necessary to treat badgers so brutally or to torture them in any way. There are examples of countries where bovine TB has been controlled without these bargaric methods, for example Scotland and the Netherlands. The highest standards of animal husbandry together with minimising the movement of cattle are first steps in the process. Also vaccilnation of Badgers would be more cost effective than spending millions on torturing these wonderful animals.
