Anti-badger cull protestors march through Taunton
6:10pm Saturday 7th September 2013 in Somerset
AROUND 300 people took part in a march through Taunton earlier today, Saturday, September 7, to protest at the badger cull taking place in West Somerset.
The event, organised by the Somerset Badger Patrol, passed off peacefully despite heavy rain.
The six-week pilot, also running in Gloucestershire, will help eradicate bovine TB according to the Government and many farmers.
But opponents say it would be more humane and effective to vaccinate.
Protestors marched through Taunton with banners and later joined a rally.
