Badger Culling

Badger culling in the United Kingdom is a method used in parts of the country to reduce the number of badgers. This reduction has usually been aimed at controlling the spread of two diseases, rabies and bovine tuberculosis (bTB). This article discusses almost exclusively badger culling to stop the spread of bTB. Bovine tuberculosis can be transmitted to humans; but public health control measures, including milk pasteurisation and the BCG vaccine, mean that bTB is not currently considered a significant risk to human health.
