In January 2013 another person lost his life (an Irish farmer was killed in 2010) whilst involved in bTB testing his herd. He was crushed by a bull. bTB testing is more frequent. Many involved sustain injuries. Cattle too are killed or injured in the process. The Health and Safety Executive is investigating alongside Dyfed-Powys Police Is the existing policy now having more of an adverse impact on human and cattle welfare than the risks from the disease it is aiming to control/eradicate?
