Gloucester ‘Pilot Badger Cull’ aborted


Yes, it’s official. The Gloucester ‘pilot’ badger cull (in extension) has now been ABORTED, owing to failure to reach targets. Badger killing legally stops at noon on Saturday. Nobody knows how many will still be illegally murdered, increasing the TB risk to cattle.

TRAGIC tweets from misled farmers threatening punitive illegal badger killing spree, putting their neighbours at increased risk.

A clear, responsible statement from the NFU would be helpful to all at this moment, deploring irresponsible do-it-yourself killings.
