A few days ago, the British government announced that farmers in two areas of the country would be allowed to shoot badgers. The measure represents an attempt to tackle bovine TB.
However, activists are not happy with the fact that around 5,000 animals will be culled. If the measure is rolled out across the country, as many as 100,000 badgers might have the same fate.
It turns out that the badgers have an ally. Hackers claim to have breached into the systems of NFU Mutual, the commercial arm of the UK’s National Farmers Union (NFU).
