Detail of outcome
We received 832 responses to this consultation. We have updated the guidance to Natural England on licences to control the risk of bovine TB from badgers.
We want to know what you think about our proposal to update the TB strategy to allow licensed badger control in the Low Risk Area of England. It would apply on the rare occasion that bovine TB is present in badgers and is linked with infection in cattle herds. These badger control measures would help stop the disease spreading further.
The proposal is part of the government’s TB Strategy to eradicate bovine tuberculosis (TB) in England.
