Badger culls were ineffective

Still Waters

An independent scientific assessment of last year's pilot badger culls in parts of Gloucestershire and Somerset has concluded that they were not effective.

Analysis commissioned by the government found the number of badgers killed fell well short of the target deemed necessary, the BBC understands.

And up to 18% of culled badgers took longer than five minutes to die, failing the test for humaneness.

Five minutes to die is appaling. I have a badger den near where I take my Whippets for a run (they are more interested in the chickens and rabbits but never catch any)..
