Anti-badger cull protest at Tesco in Bristol
Animal activists have staged a demonstration outside Tesco in Bristol city centre today.
Around 20 protesters handed out leaflets to shoppers from 11am displaying their anger at the supermarket chain for supplying milk from farms where badger culling takes place. Further protests are planned outside Tesco again on Tuesday and next Saturday.
Bob Low, from Bristol Animal Rights Collective, said: "Tesco continues to sell milk from farmers in the cull zones despite the fact that the cull is scientifically flawed, is opposed by the majority of people and is obviously very cruel. We shall continue to demonstrate against any company involved in badger killing and thank the public for their support today."
A Tesco spokesperson responded to the claims, saying: "Animal welfare is an important and sensitive issue for many of our customers and we take our responsibilities in this area very seriously.

"We are not for or against the culling trial but we recognise the significant threat that bovine TB poses to dairy farmers and their livelihoods.
"Therefore we believe it is for farmers to decide whether to take part in the cull. We want to support British farmers through this challenging time and will continue to buy from those who participate."
