Reports claim that the culling of badgers for controlling the spread of bovine tuberculosis in the UK is a non-scientific and wasteful method. Several alternatives have been suggested including vaccines for both badgers and cattle and it remains to be seen how successfully these are implemented. Badgergate (http://www.badgergate.org/) is campaigning against the issue. You can read more about the issue on their website (which also has this cartoon :-)) and on http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/badgers-and-bovineTB and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badger_culling_in_the_United_Kingdom
