Badger Cull Sparks Protest

BBC - 6th August 2000

Hundreds of campaigners from around the UK have protested in the Peak District against a cull of badgers.

The UK Government has authorised the cull in the Derbyshire national park to discover any link between badgers and bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle.

Farmers usually blame badgers for infecting cattle with the disease.
