CAMPAIGNERS against a badger cull in the county will have a keen eye on a meeting next week.
Gloucestershire County Council's next full council meeting on November 21 at 10am includes a review of their current policy of allowing the shooting of badgers on county land.
The review was recommended by the council's overview and scrutiny committee following receipt of a petition signed by 779 people.
Liz Gaffer, spokesman for Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting said: "We are hoping the council will acknowledge the evidence that allowing badger shooting in this way will not improve the situation with bovine TB for farmers, in fact it may make it worse."
The Gloucestershire meeting is the final council meeting to discuss the issue, following a 30/1 vote against culling on public land in the Forest of Dean and a majority voted to reject the proposal to cull at Tewkesbury Borough Council on October 1.
