BEWARE DISTRESSING IMAGES
22nd October 2019
Bags of dead badgers are lined up ready to be burnt – victims of the latest Government-backed cull.
Nearly 63,000 of the animals are being slaughtered in this year’s killing programme.
The bloody, lifeless creatures in these shocking images were blasted to death in the South West last month.
The photographs were taken in one of the centres where carcasses are stored before being incinerated.
The pictures were passed to the Mirror by the Badger Trust which is fighting to end the cull – and come as MPs prepare to hold a 90-minute Westminster Hall debate on Wednesday on the scheme.
