Wish them luck

I’ll try to refrain from having a rant here, as most of those reading will already know what my opinion is. The government has set out plans to license farmers in England to shoot badgers on their land. There is a school of thought that suggests a cull may worsen the problem though. As usual, science has little influence over policy. Fortunately, I don’t expect any of the badgers I photograph to be affected by this, as they’re all dwelling at various setts deep in the Forest, away from any livestock and farms.
