Cull of the wild; VOICE OF THE.

SHOOTING badgers is unnecessarily cruel, especially when scientists warn there is no credible evidence the slaughter will halt the spread of TB in cattle.

The resumption of culling in Somerset and Gloucestershire after the failure of last year's killings is just the powerful farming lobby refusing to admit that is wrong.

The slaughter of a large number of badgers is not the right way to deal with a health problem in cattle.
