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.
Ken Goodwin reports:
Council votes to ask Government to find 'more humane solution' to badger cull.
Taunton Deane Borough Council is to call on the Government to find a more humane solution to the problem of bovine TB.
More than 100,000 people have signed an online petition opposing the cull of badgers planned for Gloucestershire and West Somerset.
