We recently hosted a meeting at our Headquarters with various organisations who are all passionate about putting a stop to the controversial badger cull pilots.
Representatives from the Badger Trust, RSPCA, Humane Society International, Care for the Wild, Secret World and the Stroud 100 were all in attendance along with Brian May from the group 'Save Me'. The meeting was extremely productive and the League is really looking forward to continuing to work together to stop the badger cull.
