The Badger is a beautiful animal, loved by so many but hated by so many in the Agriculture Industry due to its potential for suffering and spreading bovine tuberculosis. Whilst it is understandable that the spreading of TB to meat and dairy cattle causes undeniable issues to farmers and the food chain, this is yet another example of Human activities encroaching into ever decreasing wild habitats, which then brings wild animals into closer contact with humans and their food sources. There are ways and means to minimise contact without unnecessary extreme measures and there should be no need for hatred towards the animal, just an understanding of the situation and adequate problem solving and response. After all aren’t humans supposed to be rational?
