Badger Cull

In June 2011 the Labour government in Wales announced that an independent panel of experts would examine the evidence for badger culling in the control of Bovine TB, and there would be no cull during the review.[1]

A cull had been supported by the preceding Labour-Plaid Cymru coalition, however it had been criticised by some in the scientific community.[2]
