Alternatives to Free Shooting Cull

no hunting no shooting

Free shooting badger culls, currently used in Britain, is not considered by many scientists and animal rights activists to be the most humane or effective method of controlling bovine tuberculosis. There exists a number of different ways that this disease can potentially be controlled, and may be used in combination with badger culling for increased efficiency:

  • Vaccinations
  • Livestock Management & Surveillance
  • Fertility Control

In addition, alternatives to a free shooting method for culls may involve:

  • Gassing Setts (underground badger dens)
  • Cage Trapping
