Sad day for countryside as badgers targeted
IT has been announced that, sadly, thousands of badgers in the South of England are due to be culled by the Government.
Up to 5,000 of the animals could be culled in Somerset and Gloucestershire when the scheme starts in June.
The Government has defended its decision as it feels it will stop the spread of tuberculosis in cattle.
In 2011, 26,000 cattle in England had to be slaughtered after contracting bovine tuberculosis.

The RSPCA is against the cull going ahead and has said it wants to help fund the development of a vaccination instead.
