In 1997 the so-called Krebs Report recommended a randomized field trial be undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of badger culling as a method of reducing bovine TB incidence in cattle herds. The Randomised Badger Culling Trial was carried out in 30 100-sq-km areas. Along with related studies, it provided insights into several epidemiological aspects of the multi-species disease system. The coalition government is currently seeking views on its proposal to include badger culling as a component of a science-led policy to control bovine TB.
