An e-petition for Badgers

Wild Justice submitted an e-petition to the House of Commons Petitions Committee over 50 days ago – they are clearly very busy but quite why it took so long, I can’t say.

But after a flurry of activity yesterday it was published around 09:30 this morning and we started promoting it around 10:30. By 12:30 it had passed 5,000 signatures. that’s amazing – and shows how angry people are about the DEFRA/Natural England/NFU Badger cull.

I hate making predictions but 10,000 signatures today looks more likely than not – particularly if you sign up and then ask your friends to do the same please.

  1. Passed the 14,000 mark and it's not yet midnight on it's first day. Already requires a written response so I wonder how long before Defra churn out a the usual standard waffle ....

  2. I actually think the final target should be more like quarter of a million (oh no - I'm sounding like Boris Johnson). If Mark can marshal his energy, experience and networking skills as in the past, this is a petition that could resonate with a huge number of folk and organisations with widely different backgrounds and interests. A really big response would remind ministers that people who care about our wildlife have not 'gone away' any more than the virus has.
