Badger Cull Provokes Fresh Protests

BBC - 6th May 1999

A controversial government badger cull is about to enter its second phase despite protests from animal welfare groups. The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) organised the cull in an attempt to establish if there is a link between badgers and the devastating cattle disease, bovine tuberculosis (TB).

MAFF estimates between 5,000 and 10,000 badgers will be culled during the five-year operation, while conservation groups like the Wildlife Trusts put the figure as high as 20,000.
