Badgergate's news section offers you a selection of important news on bovine TB and the pilot badger culls, including past media highlights.  Our selection is by no means comprehensive, but rather a collection of news items that we found particularly interesting, useful, or just funny.

We've actually discovered that one of the best ways to keep up with breaking news is through Twitter. You can find out more about how to do that on our What you can do page. For those of you who are not into Twitter, there are plenty of other ways of keeping up with what's happening. Gordon McGlone's website offers a great Scoop-it news section on badgers. The Badger Trust maintains an archive of press releases on major badger news and its campaign to stop the cull. Team Badger covers all the major latest news as do many of Team Badger's campaign partners.

The Guardian has an excellent collection of news items on the pilot badger culls and bovine TB, including some in-depth articles, with particularly good coverage in the run-up to last year's planned cull, which was eventually postponed to the summer of 2013. There's also wide coverage of the badger cull and broader bovine TB and livestock management issues on the Farmers Weekly and Farmers Guardian websites.
