The Welsh Assembly Government have announced proposals to tackle TB found in other wildlife in Wales.

Rural Affairs Minister Elin Jones has launched a consultation on a draft legislative order to control TB in camelids, goats and deer. 

What's a camelid I hear you cry? Take a look at the wikipedia page for a full explanation.

Elin Jones said: "Camelids, goats and deer as well as cattle and badgers are susceptible to catching and spreading TB".

"Our aim is to eradicate Bovine TB from Wales and we are committed to tackling all sources of infection, in both domesticated animals and wildlife, to do that".
