To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
(1) how many badger carcasses resulting from the pilot badger culls have been disposed of at category 1 waste facilities; and if he will list those facilities;
(2) how many badgers have been reported killed in the two pilot badger cull areas.
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 Detailed operational information will not be published during the pilots.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.
