Cow cull game removed from Bristol museum
A game at a Bristol museum that sees the culling of cows affected by bovine tuberculosis has been “temporarily removed“ due to “feedback from visitors.”
Beat Bovine Tuberculosis was based at WeTheCurious since 2014.
The owners have now confirmed it has been removed following complaints.
In a statement they said:
“Following an ongoing review of our exhibitions and combined with feedback from visitors, we’ve taken the decision to temporarily remove it from the venue floor whilst we reassess the design and content of the exhibit.
“In the case of bovine tuberculosis, we have a digital game exhibit which was intended to present the complexity of options currently available for managing the disease in livestock, and to create a place for visitors to consider the issues around this.
“The exhibit was designed and conceived in 2014 and was created by funding from BBSRC (Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council) and in collaboration with Exeter University.
“We value accuracy alongside creating spaces where different viewpoints can be explored in respectful conversation. As part of this, we are committed to continually reviewing our exhibits to best serve our visitors.”
