The Badger Trust has lost its High Court bid to stop the cull of thousands of badgers in West Gloucestershire and West Somerset.
At a hearing last month, the Trust accused the livestock industry of using badgers as a scapegoat, and underestimating the risk of cattle-to-cattle transmission of bovine TB. Today it was ruled that the legal challenge failed on all grounds.
The two proposed culling trials are scheduled to begin later this summer. Dr Gordon McGlone is from the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust. He isn't happy with the decision.
