The Gloucestershire Citizen report:
MORE details about the humaneness of the shooting during the badger cull could be revealed by the Government.
The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) failed to provide an uncensored copy of its badger cull ‘humaneness assessment document’. This was requested by the Humane Society UK under the Freedom of Information Act.
The pilot badger cull, which is aimed at reducing the spread of bovine tuberculosis, began last month in Gloucestershire and Somerset.
