The pilot badger cull in Gloucestershire has been called off, after Natural England revoked the licence because of the failure to meet the new targets, Damian Carrington reports today (Friday 29 November) in the Guardian.

Marksmen failed to kill enough badgers to meet the drastically reduced targets. With the licence revoked, the cull will end at noon on Saturday 30 November, three weeks earlier than planned.

Instead of killing 70% of badgers in the area within six weeks, just 30% were killed, leading to an eight-week extension.

Mark Jones, a Gloucestershire vet and executive director of Humane Society International-UK, said: "I am much relieved the government's badger cull fiasco is finally over, for the time being at least. We hope the government will now do the decent thing and admit that killing badgers to control TB in cattle is a ludicrous and inhumane idea."
