Badger cull numbers fall short
9:41am Thursday 17th October 2013 in News
DEFRA has announced that 708 badgers were killed during the six week pilot cull in Gloucestershire.
This represents just over 30 per cent of the estimated badger population.
The aim was to kill around 1,600 badgers.
Natural England is currently considering an application to extend the licence in Gloucestershire and a decision is expected shortly.
