The article reports on the denial by the Welsh government of an allegation from pressure group Badger Trust Cymru that it is holding secret meetings with farmers to plan a badger cull in an effort to control bovine tuberculosis (TB). The group claimed that information about the meetings had been concealed in order to prevent public demonstrations. Rural Affairs Minister Elin Jones is being accused of inciting farmers to kill badgers illegally. The Farmers Union of Wales (FUW) disproved the claims by Badger Trust Cymru.
