Britain: The Badger Cull

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 24, 2012) — The British government has postponed the decision for badgers to be culled as part of measures to protect cattle from bovine tuberculosis. Badgers are made responsible for the transmission of the disease and as many as 100,000 badgers could be culled. Every year, dairy farmers in Gloucestershire and Somersethave have to slaughter thousands of cows for bovine TB control. Although badgers are a protected species, Conservative Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has given the go-ahead for the cull. But the cull has angered animal rights activists as well as many British scientists. Their protests led to the postponement of the cull to the summer of 2013.
