Posted at August 23, 2016 | By : | Categories : News | 0 Comment

Badger culls are to be carried out in five new areas of England, the BBC has reported.

Shooting of badgers will begin in early September in South Devon, North Devon, North Cornwall, West Dorset, and South Herefordshire, as part of the Government’s 25-year-strategy to eradicate bovine TB.

Dorset, Gloucestershire and Somerset are already practising culling and the BBC understands that culling companies have already been selected and marksmen trained for the new locations.
