Badger Cull Update – The Cull is Spreading

18 Jan

 

It’s not just Gloucestershire and Somerset in the firing line… As we know, the ‘winter cull’ was postponed and now it seems that the original cull areas may be considered more ‘low risk’ in regards to badgers carrying bovine tuberculosis. Other regions have now been considered a priority.

“It is the right and responsible thing to ensure that the best areas are selected to be pilots for the planned cull of badgers.” (NFU Spokesperson) It’s believed that Devon, Cornwall and Derbyshire may be considered.

The NFU Spokesperson was happy with the number of farmers who were backing the scheme in Somerset but appeared less confident about Gloucestershire. “If Gloucestershire drops out at least we would have other areas…”

We’re sure that, no matter where or when the cull takes place, protesters will do their utmost to disrupt proceedings. I’m wondering whether it’ll ever take place! We might be updating you for the next 5 years…
