The badger cull in West Somerset has already been extended and now it's likely that the cull in the other pilot area will be too.
The number of badgers killed during the six weeks in Gloucestershire has fallen far short of the Government's target.
708 of the animals were shot - that's less than 30% of the area's estimated badger population.
Environment Secretary Owen Paterson MP claims the cull has been 'a success' in an interview with ITV News West Country's Ian Axton.
