Hide, Badger! An auction to help resist the cull

Hide, Badger!

I am currently auctioning this piece of mine on ebay with all the proceeds going towards Stop the Cull, a group helpingĀ  resist the badger cull currently being trialed in the UK. This is an original wall mounted relief piece, 100% needle felted in wool and mixed fibers on a fabric backing. It measure 30x25cm and comes ready to hang.

As many of you will know, the UK government had approved a trial cull in the West Somerset and West Gloucester areas, despite the fact that there is little evidence that this will prevent the spread of bovine TB and some evidence that it will actually make it worse. I think it’s a tragedy that such beautiful animals are going to be made to suffer, not to mention that we don’t know what the knock on effects of reducing the numbers by so much would be for the rest of our eco system

I will also be selling cards and prints with proceeds going towards Stop the Cull, so keep an eye open.
