Help the badgers

Perhaps some of your readers in North Devon might like to know that many of the groups fighting the badger cull have organised a peaceful march through Exeter on Saturday (March 29).

The Badger Trust has said that the city would be an ideal regional focus for such action.

Exeter has been chosen because of the real likelihood of Devon, Cornwall and Dorset being included in any expansion of the culling plans.

Andy Gilbert, the joint organiser of the Exeter March Against the Badger Cull, has stated that he expects people from across the West Country to join the peaceful day of action.

It seems likely that the fields and farms of the South West will face night-time shooting and cage trapping of badgers once again, which has been so divisive within our communities.

Saturday will be the opportunity for all those who disagree with the cull policy to voice their opinion in a democratic and peaceful protest.

Protesters should meet in Belmont Park at noon before marching down Sidwell Street, through Northernhay Gardens and around the High Street and Princesshay.
