May's badger song reaches charts

Brian May's protest song inspired by the badger cull has made it into the charts.

The song, Save The Badger, Badger, Badger, was recorded by Queen guitarist May and internet entertainer Weebl and features the vocals of Brian Blessed.

It has made the top 40 in the iTunes download chart and is the most popular track in the iTunes Store top 10 rock chart.

Blessed, who played Prince Vultan in the 1980 film Flash Gordon which famously featured a soundtrack by Queen, said: "Brian May is absolutely inspirational and together we will beat the dark forces and save the badgers."

Around 5,000 of the animals are expected to be killed in controlled shootings over six weeks in Somerset and Gloucestershire.

Supporters say the cull is needed to tackle bovine TB, which can be spread from infected badgers.

Those against the cull, including the RSPCA and wildlife organisations, say it is ineffective and inhumane.

May said: "The British people are speaking in their many thousands, and yet the Government is refusing to listen.

"We thank them for buying this track and giving the badgers a voice. Let's get this to number one so (David) Cameron cannot avoid it.

"This cull is unscientific, unethical and won't work."
