Farmers, who cannot interfere with sets on their land because badgers are protected by law, have called on the government for a cull of the animals to protect their herds.
This is plain wrong and the BBC should be censured for it! Badgers live in setts - note the double t! The poor word "set" has enough work to do, with it being the word with the most meanings - up-to 200 according to some! So if you are off to bother a badger remember it is "sett" - it's the law!
Protection of Badgers Act 1992 (c. 51)
Interfering with badger setts.
