Cow cull will not solve issue
IN response to J Russell (Post, December 3) on the subject of TB in badgers: Firstly, 1,000 times more people, be they holidaymakers, hikers, ramblers or dog walkers, tramp across the Gower than have ever hunted on the Gower.
As for people spreading TB to wild animals, that would be a new one!
As for Gower being a suitable area to conduct tests, the Welsh Government have tagged badgers and found that they can and do travel up to 20 miles from and back to their start point, roughly the length and breadth of the Gower. Brian May is just another Badger anorak who are all opposed to a badger cull.
TB in animals started in one county in the south west of England and over 20 years has spread to more than 30 counties including all of Wales. Infected animals can be found on land where livestock have not been present for more five decades so just killing cows is not going to work, it’s not rocket science.
