Second update, and time to take action again for badgers.

Things have changed again with the little hedgehog I'm afraid.  Joan told me earlier today that it had stopped eating again, but she will continue to administer anti-biotics and hopefully she may well pick up again.

Karen asked how the new house was progressing? 
I will get the wood tomorrow (Saturday) and start the build if time allows, but it will be finished on Sunday whatever happens.  Should the worst happen I will still be putting it into the garden...


Now onto other matters.

I am not usually a political animal, but those of you in the UK will know all about the goverment plans to kill badgers in the hope of preventing the spread of Bovin TB.  It has been proven that these measures will not prevent the spread of this disease, and I feel that this slaughter is totally without foundation. (I have had a button on my side bar)  I signed the RSPCA petition against the action that was presented to the government, but as many of you may know they still intend to continue with the 'cull'.  If like me you are against this action the RSPCA has another campaign asking them to consider the use of vaccination instead.  I have posted the link below for those of you who feel as I do. 
The Welsh Government listened, maybe Westminster will too?



Thank you - I'm getting off my soapbox now.

I do hope the little hedgehog recovers. As for the badgers, culling seldom works. While the disease is dreadful, I am of your mind: vaccinate. Hope your efforts are successful

Definitely vaccination! I'm with you on this one Rose. Sorry to hear that the little one is poorly again. I'm waiting with baited breath to hear what happens...
