Ricky investigates badger cull


Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

If you want to find badgers you have to be very quiet - and be prepared to be wait around for a while.

That's what Ricky found out when he went looking for the stripy creatures in Pembrokeshire in Wales.

And soon they could be ever harder to spot, because the Welsh Assembly plans to cull more than 1,000 badgers because they say it will stop them spreading a disease to cows called TB.

Not everyone agrees with the plan - and some people think killing badgers could even make things worse. Check out Ricky's report here.
