A controversial badger cull is expected to begin later today.
It's thought culling companies employed by DEFRA will start shooting the animals in West Somerset from tonight.
The Government says culling is necessary to eradicate TB in cattle, but opponents say it's ineffective in combatting the disease.
The action is likely to result in the largest animal rights protests since the ban on hunting foxes with dogs with many people expected in the cull zones.
The pilot culls in Gloucestershire and Somerset could see around 5,000 badgers killed if completed.
