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.
