There was an interesting post on the BBC News website today entitled "British blamed for Basra badgers" which starts of with the following paragraphs:
British forces have denied rumours that they released a plague of ferocious badgers into the Iraqi city of Basra.
Word spread among the populace that UK troops had introduced strange man-eating, bear-like beasts into the area to sow panic.
In the interest of public safety I thought I would post a few links to help educate people about Badgers:
