Fewer than half of the farms in some badger cull pilot areas had cows on them, new figures revealed on Monday, according to a report on this is somerset website.

A Freedom of Information request revealed that only 43% of the land involved in Gloucestershire was on cattle or dairy farms.

In West Somerset, only 60% of the participating farms have cattle, while in Dorset, which could be the next cull zone, it is 70%.

Anti-cull protesters seized on the figures as further evidence that the killing is unnecessary.

Jeanne Berry, spokeswoman for Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS), said: "This latest information highlights the waste in this cull.

"It is a waste of wildlife and the waste of taxpayers' money in implementing it.

"Nearly all badgers killed in this cull will be healthy, and this information shows that for the minority that may have had the disease, most were not on a farm where they were a threat to cattle anyway."
