Applaud Protest of Mass Badger Cull


Target: Jay Tiernan, activist with Stop the Cull campaign

Goal: Praise activist for standing up to the government in defense of badgers.

Europe’s massive badger culls are extremely controversial and have been since their origin. Numerous petitions have been addressed to different heads of government to put an end to the inhumane culls. One activist has even risked his freedom to stop the badger culls. Jay Tiernan, with the Stop the Cull campaign, is facing a possible prison sentence due to his voracious protests of Europe’s badger culls.

Tiernan is guilty of breaking an injunction designed to stop activists from disrupting badger culls. In particular, Tiernan filmed a person involved with culling and protested outside the office of a company that was also involved. The activist will be faced with a hefty fine, the amount of which is yet to be determined. Accordingly, Tiernan is confused by his pending sentences and considers his actions within his rights as a citizen activist.

Currently, Tiernan is facing a six-month suspended jail sentence that is dependent on his ability to stop involving himself in the badger culls. The dairy farmers who are afraid of the spread of tuberculosis, believed to come from too many wild badgers, feel directly threatened by Tiernan, which is helping fuel the government action against him.

Bravely, Tiernan has proclaimed that the fines, punishment and intimidation will not stop him from standing up for the downtrodden badgers of Europe. Stand with Tiernan and his unwavering, compassionate activism by signing this petition.


Dear Mr. Tiernan,

I am writing to commend you for your brave activism. The European government is waging a war against badgers and you will not stand for it. I know that the government has threatened you with fines and prison sentences; pressure of this nature is not easy to overcome. However, you have remained steadfast in your beliefs and actions. Because of you and other activists, citizens are listening and demanding more compassion toward the badgers.

Your intentions are pure, and I am on your side. Please use this petition in any way necessary to save the badgers from an intense and unnecessary cull. I urge you to continue fighting for the badgers of Europe. They are greatly advantaged from having an ally so compassionate, strong and intelligent. Thank you for all that you do, Mr. Tiernan.

    Mr Tiernan, you are an absolute hero!!! Unlike the cowardly scum who initiated this cull and those who carry it out, you are in the RIGHT and there’s no escaping this. God is on your side, rest assured, and you can’t go wrong. Bless you and please carry on regardless-WE ARE ALL WITH YOU!!!

  2. When someone ” has the courage to say no, has the courage to face the truth, does the right thing because it is right” it certainly cannot not go unnoticed – and should never EVER be threatened with jail sentences! Stay with it, Mr Tieman!
