Protesters at the night walk against the badger cull

About 100 animal welfare campaigners joined a protest against plans for a badger cull to combat bovine TB in cattle.

Protesters gathered for a night-time walk at Dunster Castle, west Somerset, on Tuesday 16 October.

The event was organised by former dairy farmer and Secret World wildlife charity founder Pauline Kidner, of the Somerset Badger Group.

The protestors say TB should be controlled by vaccinating badgers and cows, rather than a cull. But pro-cull farmers say an effective vaccine is too far off.
