if John Yorke owner of the Forthampton estate pulls out, the glos cull zone will crumble, many badger setts have been found filled in on his 3,000 acre estate. The police have investigated and pesticides were found on one of the setts, so badgers have died slow painful deaths. Ledbury hunt also uses the estate a lot.

Please use all your powers of persuasion to encourage Mr. Yorke to stop this cull before it gets nasty.
