ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan by the Welsh Assembly Government for a limited badger cull in a pilot area of west Wales in 2010. It mentions that this plan has been opposed by the Badger Trust, which is seeking a judicial review of the legislation that permits a cull. Meanwhile, Rural Affairs Minister Elin Jones has said that the area selected had been chosen because it achieved the criteria that were needed for any badger removal project to be successful.
