Government Secrecy Over Badger Slaughter

Why all the secrecy surrounding the badger culls? What has the government got to hide? A year on, they still haven’t released data on any of the thousands of badgers killed last year, so we’re forced to use data from the Randomised Badger Culling Trial, the only large-scale scientific test of the effect of killing badgers on TB in cattle ever carried out anywhere in the world. The main conclusion of the trial was that killing badgers wasn’t an effective way of controlling cattle TB.
