Pheasant by Julian Bhalerao
Badgered to Death

Badgered to Death

Dominic Dyer, Foreword Chris Packham

How a protected animal became hunted in the English countryside and how nature lovers fought back.

For centuries the badger (Meles meles) was persecuted in Britain, until it received legal protection in 1973.

Now it is being targeted again - by the Government.

Up to 100,000 badgers could be slaughtered by 2020 in a cull disowned by animal disease experts.

In this robust book, Dominic Dyer, chief executive of the Badger Trust, reveals the real cost of Britain's most controversial wildlife policy - and its hidden origins in party politics and big business.

"The great service this book achieves is to pronounce the facts."
