How bovine TB is affecting badgers and cattle



This video is 5 minutes long, was published on 7th May 2013 and was sourced from the Veterinary Association for Wildlife Management (VAWM) (unavailable on 15 April 2015) web site.

VAWM are general veterinary practitioners, spread across England , Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Many members have clinical experience with common species of domestic and wild animals. Some are, or were, in the pharmaceutical industry, some are academics with research experience, five are veterinary professors and six are fellows of the Royal College of Pathologists.

The objectives of the Association are to promote the sensible management of British wildlife by methods that are advantageous for the welfare of wild animals and which promote or sustain the health and vigour of their species.

As such the aims of the association are to:
  • Maintain a balance between various species of wild animals, birds and plants - in particular those that are indigenous to the area where the management is practised, thereby promoting biodiversity
  • Protect the health and welfare of farmed and other domestic animals
  • Protect the livelihoods of farmers and others whose livelihoods depend on the management of wildlife
  • Protect public health
In July 2006 the following members
  • J.M Daykin, MRCVS, Practice, Lewes, East Sussex
  • Dr J Gallagher, retd. VLA (ex veterinary pathologist since 1972, ex SVIO Devon and Cornwall, TB Adviser,Veterinary Research Divn., DEFRA )
  • Dr L.H Thomas, Retd. IAH, Compton, Berkshire (ex Research Pathologist)
submitted this 9-point list which summarises why, in their opinion, the Randomised Badger Culling Trial (RBCT) was fatally flawed and badly implemented.
