THE Court of Appeal has today rejected a bid by the Badger Trust to block a cull of badgers.

The Badger Trust said it was disappointed the court had upheld a decision by the High Court to allow the cull - which is an attempt to control Bovine TB.

A Trust spokesman said: “The Badger Protection Act remains unfit for its supposed purpose of protecting the species.

“The science relating to culling remains completely unaffected and clear. Unfortunately scientific fact cannot be tested in court.”
