Posters warn people to stay indoors during badger cull

Posters warning residents to stay indoors during a badger cull because of the dangers of stray bullets have been branded as scaremongering.

They've been put up in villages near where a pilot badger cull will take place in Gloucestershire.

They warn people to keep their children and pets indoors when the cull starts.

Proposed Badger Cull

More than 100,000 people have signed an online petition opposing the cull of badgers planned for Gloucestershire and West Somerset. It could mean the decision is referred back to parliament for further debate.
