Badger Trust press release (1st November)
The Badger Trust says that "Local extinction of badgers moves closer as badger cull heads for record badger deaths".
After refusing to release this year's intensive cull licence statistics for the first time since the controversial badger cull began, the government has now finally succumbed to public and campaign pressure and published this year's intensive cull licence figures.
So we learn that "Another 11 cull zones have been added to England, covering a land mass almost double the size of London, as the cull intensifies".
