Farmers Weekly would like to clarify that this photograph showing badgers in a field in daylight with cattle was taken in a captive environment, at the Secret World Wildlife Centre, Highbridge, Somerset in 1989 and not on a farm.

The picture was purchased from a south west picture agency several years ago and used in innocence to illustrate coverage about Bovine TB

It was never our intention to mislead readers.

This clarification follows a complaint made to the Press Complaints Commission.
