Controlled shooting of badgers in the field under licence to prevent the spread of bovine TB in cattle: best practice guidance, 2012, pp 17 pp.
Abstract

Control of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in cattle has proven particularly challenging where reservoirs of infection exist in wildlife populations. In Britain and Ireland, control is hampered by a reservoir of infection in Eurasian badgers (Meles meles). Badger culling has positive and negative effects...
