Badger cull petition reaches 300,000 signatures in two weeks
A PETITION calling on the Government to put a stop to pilot badger culls has climbed to 300,000 signatures in the two weeks since the first animal was shot.
There has been a rise in people signing the Number 10 e-petition since the pilot culls began in areas of Somerset and Gloucestershire.
It is the biggest petition on the Government site.
