Guidance to Natural England on the implementation and enforcement of a badger control policy (Defra) - TSI response - September 2011

TSI response (PDF 111KB). TSI agrees that action is needed to combat bovine TB. It believes that, should the culling of badgers take place, only the two methods proposed (controlled shooting and cage-trapping and shooting) should be used, and then only if they are considered humane. TSI supports the strict monitoring of culling to maintain humaneness.
