There is no evidence that this badger died as part of the cull. We would suggest that it is handed over to the proper authorities in order that they can do a post mortem examination to determine the cause of death. All badgers shot as part of the cull have been accounted for.
Pauline Kidner, who founded the wildlife rescue charity Secret World, says the badger cull should be stopped after a dead badger was handed in to the centre in Somerset with bullet wounds to the abdomen.
Ms Kidner claims this proves that the cull marksmen failed to kill the animal humanely.
The National Farmers Union has responded to claims that a dead badger in Somerset suffered an unnecessarily lingering death because it had been shot in the abdomen and left to die.
“We have seen no evidence that a badger has been found. If one has been found there is no evidence to suggest it is associated with the cull. All badgers shot as part of the cull have been collected and accounted for. Humaneness monitors are also going out with contractors.”
