The badger ‘cull’ stinks – could slurry be the real culprit for the spread of bTB?

By Justin Kerswell, Campaigns Manager and Deputy Director of Viva!

At time of writing, parts of Somerset and Gloucestershire are once again reverberating to the sounds of gunshots and the screams of dying badgers. Despite the Government’s previous trials in 2013 being roundly condemned as pointless, bloody, inhumane and costly the guns are out again. Yet a rather pungent, potential culprit is quite literally spreading more-or-less unchecked across the countryside and nothing is being done about it.
