Survey shows people think badger cull is a 'failure'
A SURVEY has shown around 51 per cent of people believe the badger cull has been a failure.
The YouGov poll, commissioned by Humane Society UK, showed that of 1,805 people above 18, only 15 per cent of people thought the cull has been a success.
Last week, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson said only 850 badgers have been culled in Somerset, short of their 2,600 target. An extension was given until November 1.
An application has been put in to Natural England by private companies carrying out the cull in Gloucestershire to extend the cull. The application is being considered as the Citizen went to print.
