Badger Cull to Begin in England

A needless slaughter of thousands of fit and healthy badgers begins within days in parts of
England.

Animals will be shot without any attempt being made to establish their disease status before killing.

A capture and test programme is on-going in parts of NI with healthy animals released and those carrying the disease culled. We must be vigilant that financial cost doesn’t become an imperative with the wanton slaughter in England being extended to Northern Ireland.
