Letter from Mr Albert Weager (J10)
I remain convinced that the continued culling
of badgers will prove little that is not already known ie that
both cattle and badgers can be infected with the disease, as can
What needs to be determined is how, by identifying
the means of transmission. My own experience, as previously mentioned,
drives me towards the existence of a "tic" which puts
the infection into a host's blood stream. Thus the infection could
easily be transmitted from cow to cow, badger to badger, cow to
badger and badger to cow.
Have the investigators tried to identify such
an agent of transmission?
