Dorset Closer to Badger Cull

Badger

6:56am 19th February 2014

The RSPCA say we're one step closer to seeing a badger cull in Dorset.

Landowners in the county have now been invited to submit applications for licenses to kill the animals.

The RSPCA claim pilot culls in Somerset and Gloucestershire failed, and TB figures used to justify them were grossly over stated due to a computer error.

RSPCA Head of Public Affairs and Campaigns David Bowles said: "There is no justification to continue with these misguided plans, let alone extend them. We care about both cattle and badgers but science has shown the cull is not the answer to bovine TB in cattle, and the pilot culls in Somerset and Gloucestershire last year were a catalogue of errors from start to finish."

They're calling on people in Dorset who are against a cull to make their feelings known to their local county councillor.
