Yesterday it was confirmed by the government that they will be going ahead with a badger cull in England. This means that at least 70 per cent of the badger population could be killed as part of measures aiming to control bovine TB in cattle.
The RSPCA believes that the government has made the wrong decision and the cull will contribute nothing to the goal of eradicating bovine TB but will wipe out a large number of badgers most of which are completely healthy.
