Badger cull debate

Martin Aaron Martin Aaron | 09:26 UK time, Wednesday, 25 March 2009

Up to 1,000 badgers could be trapped and shot in north Pembrokeshire following the announcement yesterday of plans for a pilot cull.

Rural Affairs Minister Elin Jones, who has authorised the scheme, says the cull is required in order to eradicate TB in cattle. But wildlife campaigners claim it's a "misguided attempt " to control the disease.
