The badger cull

The prevalent fall back position in Western society seems to be that if there’s a problem then kill it, remove it, bulldoze it into oblivion.There still seems to be a belief in the concept of a Final Solution.
I was kind of glad to read this article   http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/oct/13/badger-cull-mindless

This is a smoke fired ceramic sculpture of ‘Maggot’ a friendly little Badger who sometimes visits my garden. I find it hard to believe that the government is paying Rambo to creep around in forests and fields at night to shoot her. Surely it would be simpler to stop raising cattle in factory farms and instead allow them access to fresh air and natural food and so improve their health and resistance to TB? Or is it just that scientists are again trying to dominate Mother Nature with their guns and poisons?

About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.

    I couldn’t agree with you more, on both counts – the healthy raising of cows and the apparently insane culling of badgers.
