This short report gives details of the badger populations on farms in which visible lesion tuberculosis was found in the cattle during 1982.

Bovine tuberculosis in badgers, seventh report., 1983, pp 19pp.
Abstract

Although there was no cast-iron evidence of the connection between tuberculosis in badgers and in cattle, circumstantial evidence of interchange of Mycobacterium bovis between badger and cattle was very strong. It is disturbing to note that deer may also act as a reservoir for tuberculosis. Of 3084 ...

This report makes good reading and would interest all who love wildlife. The rather staccato style of writing does not, at first, commend itself to the reader but it is probably ideal for this type of report. If the anti-badger-killing lobby were to read it, many would begin to doubt the validity...
