Deer to be culled at Sellafield
According to the article 'Deer set to be culled at Sellafield in Cumbria' published on the North West Evening News website on January 27th 2014, a herd of roe deer had become trapped between two security fences at Sellafield nuclear power station in Cumbria.
Rather than releasing them, the company had agreed to cull them – on the advice of the Deer Initiative, which is largely made up of pro-hut, pro-shoot, pro-stalking interests.
Once the exact number of deer has been determined, the cull will take place twice daily over 15 days between February and April.
Animal Aid had launched a petition asking for the deer to be released instead.
