Brian May Launches High Court Challenge to Gloucestershire Badger Cull

The Telegraph

Rock guitarist Brain May and his ‘Save Me’ organisation (campaigning to end the badger cull) have launched a legal challenge, at the High Court, to the Gloucestershire badger cull.

“John Cooper QC, who is representing the group, said: “From the material I have seen already, it is clear that appropriate procedures have not been taken in relation to this action, which will inevitably lead to the destruction of more wildlife if the government remains unchallenged.

“In all the circumstances and for the grounds we have set out, we assert that the decisions made by Defra, the Secretary of State and Natural England, separately and or cumulatively were unreasonable and should be immediately revoked.”

  1. Very glad to hear this! It’s gratifying to see anyone heft their celebrity weight for such an important cause. Typical government. They’re vaccinating with one hand and murdering with the other, so they can tell everyone what they what they want to hear.

  2. Yet another sweet treat! How great is that, that he would throw is fame and weight into this. I sure wish more of the rich and famous would get involved in such things. I hope you have a great week, Amelia. Blessings, Natalie 🙂

  4. Thank you, Amelia, it is encouraging news. This is the right thing to do when all efforts have failed. Crossing my fingers for Mr May and the badgers of Gloucestershire. What about the badgers in the other counties? … I have read that vaccination just starts in some of them. Keep strong, little darlings, many, many people love you. ♥ ♥
