Background:
Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a disease of cattle which can be passed to a wide range of other animals including badgers. The science shows that very few badgers have bTB, even fewer are infectious and the likelihood of badgers transmitting bTB to cattle is extremely low. Despite this, we feel that vaccination is worthwhile to help stamp out bTB, help our farming communities and create a healthier badger population.

Vaccination involves humane trapping of adult badgers and cubs overnight, vaccination and release.  By vaccinating a badger population over several years works by building ‘herd immunity’. The treated badger social groups will develop a high level of resistance to the disease.

Badger BCG vaccination alone is not the solution to bTB, but it does have an immediate effect with no known negative impact. . Vaccination is more effective than culling in controlling and minimising reservoirs of disease in badger populations. It is also more cost effective.
