Badger cull in Gloucestershire for 8 more weeks.

Everyone has their own opinions on the badger cull. Good or bad, it usually depends on your background, most ecologists want to stop the cull, most farmers who keep livestock want to have as bigger cull possible. Personally i think that a cull is needed, but it has not been researched enough and there are better and more humane ways of carrying it out. But i am no expert. Whatever your opinion, Natural England have just announced an "extension to the badger control licence" in Gloucestershire http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/about_us/news/2013/231013.aspx#.Umf0IhTvSkA.facebook
