From BadgerTrust.org.uk: Over 176,000 badgers have been killed since the current badger cull began in England in 2013. Badgers are killed in their thousands from Cornwall to Cumbria under misguided and fundamentally flawed attempts to control bovine Tuberculosis (bTB), an infectious respiratory disease which affects cattle. Bovine TB is always present in the environment and can affect or be carried harmlessly by many species livestock and wildlife alike. Yet the government has focused on badgers, even though 94% of cattle infections are from cow to cow. Many in the farming community wrongly believe that badgers are a significant vector in the spread of the disease. For many years, independent scientists, vets, researchers, as well as Badger Trust, have rightly challenged this claim.

"I am an artist, writer and therapist, always advocating for the non-human animal and species rights, alongside human rights and the planet itself. I create work to draw attention to all suffering, and aim to evoke compassion. I live in the wilds of Northumberland (England) and can be found amongst the hills, scribbling and sketching, often under the watchful and curious gaze of other animals." ~ Julie, May 2022
