Fight back on Badgers

Last week we had a setback on our Badger case when we heard that the Hon Mr Justice Johnson had refused permission for judicial review of Natural England’s licensing of Badger shooting.

This week, after consulting with our legal team, we’ve decided to appeal the judge’s order and today we lodged court papers to this effect.

Our view remains unchanged that Badger shooting is inhumane and that Natural England is not taking full account of the animal welfare aspects of Badger culling.

We now await the court’s decision.
