HUNDREDS of animal and wildlife lovers attended a rally outside Cardiff's Welsh Assembly building today (June 28), against the proposed 'cull' of badgers to curb bovine TB in cattle in Wales.
Supporters from across the country and beyond were out in force in support of national campaigning organisation Viva!, who claim the 'cull 'will be an animal welfare disaster that will do nothing to solve the problem - fearing it may even make it worse.
The group are calling on Elin Jones (Minister for Welsh Rural Affairs) to act on the available science and cancel the 'cull'.
