ABSTRACT
The author criticizes the Badger Trust and Prof Bourne of the Independent Scientific Group on Cattle TB for being in denial about badger culling in Great Britain. The latest bovine tuberculosis (TB) statistics suggest 2007's figure may be as bad as the 2005 peak. The trust's latest newsletter admits badgers do give cows TB and that perturbation is the problem, but seem unable to see that a cull is necessary. He asserts that farmers are being badly let down by Great Britain Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.
