What if we have a badger parade? Would that help?

Jesting aside, I wish this is one I felt well-informed enough about to back up my opinion!  I've seen so many conflicting articles on whether vaccines are viable or not I genuinely don't know whether it should be supported.

I'm also not informed enough but thinking maybe a cattle farmer is. I may also be letting my distaste of mr may sway my opinion. I'll hopefully learn some more very soon. 😁

No one is perfect, especially in an area like this where there's competing evidence. Eavis might be on the wrong side (I don't know either).

I think what we can safely presume is that even if Eavis is wrong him having a stance on it is with the best intentions for his cattle, which he's always going to put before badgers.

My biggest concern is the cows and the badgers realising we're the common foe and forming an alliance against us.

Not sure why Michael has got involved in this. His cows rarely (if ever) leave the cow shed so are at very limited risk of TB.

Hope he comes out with more politically divisive comments so I have a better chance of a ticket.

Iirc Michael said in 2013 at the q&a that he supported the cull. He did however concede that badgers look marvellous with their stripes.

Game , sett and match to Eavis ?!  I’m a meat eater and milk drinker both of which I’m aware are not great for animal welfare ... I can’t really adopt a moral stance because I don’t like badgers being killed ... ok im becoming vegan ... but bloody hell im not missing Glastonbury for anything !!

Av never actually seen a badger, not convinced they exist 

I now live in Shropshire and there's dead badgers everywhere you go on the country roads and lanes. Suck it up Brian May.

I thought all Bodgers and Badgers weren't welcome since the 'incident'.

Yeah, an appearance by Bodger is unlikely these days.

Hmm, you would have thought there was plenty of pasture for them, if they are kept indoors in an intensive farming regime there would be a greater risk of TB spreading rapidly if one got infected. Maybe Eavis's cows don't live the idyllic life represented by the festival when they showed the "cows are back" video after the cleanup.

Compassion in world farming are against intensive dairy. https://www.ciwf.org.uk/our-campaigns/dairy/

I'm not saying Eavis uses this method, I have no idea, maybe Ommadawn knows more.

Edit, there is little evidence of cows on google earth pics and on the numerous site visits done by people on here.

Down here, the farmers shoot them (illegally), load them into the back of their Land-rovers and dump them on the roads. You often see two or three together on the road. People think it's due to them using 'ancient badger pathways' but sadly it's not.
