Badger cull costs

Police costs incurred for the badger cull in Avon and Somerset during 2016 totalled £700,303.36

These costs are covered in full by Defra (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).

Badger culling is a Defra initiative, licenced by Natural England, to carry out targeted culls in selected rural areas in an attempt to tackle bovine TB.
