The government has announced that the badger cull will go ahead, and is likely to start on June 1st. This is despite many eminent scientists and wildlife experts opposing the cull. Opinion polls show the majority is also decisively opposed and, in October 2012, MPs voted to abandon the cull by 147 to just 28 votes.
In Wales, badgers are being trapped and vaccinated instead of shot.
Yet, the government remains determined to shoot thousands of badgers in England. The killing will begin in June 2013.
