SIR – I would like to say how pleased I am that the badgers will now not be murdered.

MPs voted to abandon the cull in England entirely.

It is very good news. Let’s hope now they may find a vaccine to give to farm animals, as we don’t want any animal to suffer.

These lovely badgers need to be left alone and why should we foot the bill for something a lot of people are against? Regarding the person who wrote in about my other letter on badgers, saying I live in the flat world: I do know the world is round but if it was flat maybe we could push a few people off.

I am not in an organisation like the animal rights team, as much as I believe in it. I have my own beliefs.
