Tuesday, September 11 at College Green, Bristol – 4.30pm until 7pm
Brian May and other campaigners will be leading a public rally against government plans to reduce badger numbers.
They will don badger costumes and call on the government to stop the cull, which is due to take place in the South West later this month.
The free event is open to all and the charities are urging local people to come along and demonstrate their opposition. There will also be free badger face-painting available.
The Government says that culling will help combat cattle tuberculosis, which costs the UK more than £100 million per year.
May, founder of the Save Me group, has called for the vaccination of cattle rather than a cull.
'Stop the Cull' is backed by the RSPCA, League Against Cruel Sports, Save Me and Humane Society International (UK).
