A new vaccination for badgers is set to come in to force across Nottinghamshire in a bid to eradicate Bovine TB, replacing the alternative method of culling.
The announcement comes as part of government confirmation that it is to launch the Badger Edge Vaccination Scheme.
As the region is part of the ‘EDGE’ scheme, the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has welcomed the decision.
The news comes after Wildlife Trusts across the country have constantly opposed the culling of badgers as a Bovine TB control measure because scientific has suggested it doesn’t work.
The news will also be welcome to celebrities who have lent their support to stopping badger culling, with famous names such as Queen musician Brian May and actor Brian Blessed producing a video which you can see here.
