Badger Vaccinations Moving Across Dorset Farms


7:32am 26th June 2014

The Dorset Badger Vaccination Project say, they've successfully completed their first landowner requests in the West Country.

The newly formed team of Government trained Bovine TB vaccinators managed to trap and vaccinate 29 badgers in 10 days.

The volunteers say they're focusing on more vaccination projects around the county.

DEFRA abandoned plans to extend a badger cull to Dorset back in April (2014). At the time local campaign group Dorset for Badger and Bovine Welfare said the announcement came as a "Huge Relief."
