ON READING the article by Harry Hogger (August 29) on the Dorset badger cull, I was struck by the comments made by Trevor Cligg, NFU chairman.

Apparently up to 835 badgers per year can be killed in a six-week period and he is happy that this is now able to take place. Yet in the next sentence he states “it won’t make any difference to the industry”.

Question. If the cull will make NO DIFFERENCES then why is it to take place?
