holding answer 10 September 2013

Badger carcases resulting from the pilot badger culls need to be recorded and disposed of in line with legal requirements as Category 1 waste under the Animal By-products Regulations. The two badger pilot culls are being carried out by companies under licence from Natural England. Detailed operational information will not be published during the pilots. A full report will be published after the end of the culls.
