Five hurt in badger rampage
LONDON (Reuters) - An angry domesticated badger has savaged five people, leaving one man so seriously injured he needed skin grafts, and chased away pursuing police officers during a 48-hour rampage through a quiet town. One-year old Boris launched what experts described as unprecedented attacks after finding himself hungry, alone and frightened after being stolen or released from a wildlife visitor centre where he had been hand-reared and hand-fed. "I have been involved with badgers for 24 years and I have never heard of anything like this, nor has anyone I have spoken to," Mike Weaver, chairman of the Worcestershire Badger Society told Reuters on Tuesday. Weaver was brought in by police to catch Boris, who had bitten the five victims' arms and legs after getting loose near Evesham, Worcestershire. The officers themselves had been chased onto the bonnet of their car as they tried to round up Boris, who was later put down. Weaver said badgers were notoriously powerful animals and the incident showed the folly of trying to turn wild animals into pets.

"Domesticated Badger"

I lived up in the northwoods long enough to know that's like saying "domesticated tiger shark".

Those little bastards are ferocious.

A "domesticated" badger?" Sure. And what is this "unprecedented attack" bit? Baders are not very social beasts. I'd rather my dog meet a bear or mountain lion than a badger. Of sourse there are likely to be no badgers in the mountains of Arizona. But still, what kind of idiot would try to tame a badger?"


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.

Badgers are the biggest carnivore found in the UK.

We know how to live on the wild side over here. None of your nancy bears, big cats, snakes or anything like that. Be afraid, be very afraid...  Big grin
