    I was wondering...have there been any confirmational studies to show the direct link between Badgers and the spread of Bovine TB, or does this still need to be determined for certain?
    yes!!! they spread the bacterium in their urine!

    Yes, but in many of the articles that I have read, it keeps stating that something on the lines of 'It has been hard to determine the role of the Badger in TB spread...'

    do you think they would be culling if it hadn't been proved? why do you think try and keep badgers out of feed barns, and away from the cattle??

    Not 100% sure but most of the stuff I've read has been uncertain too but there does seem to be a link between badgers and TB in cattle...just make sure you research it first for definite...I think the topic is still very debatable :rolleyes:

    chessington? they take work exp
    Thanks, I forgot about chessington! Wow, I've not been there for like 10 years. I just wish Marwell would take me, it sucks They only take Sparsholt students and vet students, I've asked. I'm going to Marwell on Wednesday with my Biology class, though There's a conference on animal behaviour there.

    Has anyone who had a Liverpool interview on the 17th of Feb heard anything back yet? I think mine went really bad I couldn't park so I was an hour late so I was all flustered to begin with and did anyone think the guy on the ethics station was evil? I recognised him from the open day when he gave the talk on something or other and thought 'I remember him he seemed nice', then he gave me really tricky dilemmas and I didn't know what to say at all. Oh well, maybe Bristol will still interview me :dontknow:

    Ahh, I've managed to extent my tentative booking for Malaysia for another two weeks, so I don't have to make my mind up right away. I'm unlikely to hear from anywhere (except maybe Bristol) in this time, but hopefully I'll have a clearer view of everything then. It is expensive, when you include flights, injections and travel insurance. I really want to do it though!
