The Badger has been much in the news in the UK recently due to the rather botched attempts to control them in the west country as a plan to eradicate Bovine TB. Most scientific sources including leading experts have said that culling will make no difference but of course the politicians and civil servants know better than the experts and went ahead and then couldn’t even manage to cull effectively!

Here are some pictures from a farm in the south of England which embraces its badgers and where you can get really close to them unseen in a hide.
