this is why the world _needs_ CCTV cameras.  the sooner we stop listening to witnesses the better.

I bet the military officials were fighting for hours over who would get to utter the phrase "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area."

thats not an opportunity that comes twice a lifetime.

That story cracked me up.  Not that badgers are animals that you want to have a lot of dealings with, but the very notion of a town besieged by badgers is hilarious.

Hell, at first I thought this was some kind of Monty Python sketch that had been hiding out for 20 years just waiting for a chance to get slipped into the news.

Mushroom!

HEy, they do't call it badgering for nothing, it's a very real problem.

Badgers badgers badgers.

Badgers badgers badgers.

"Aside from Polar Bears (Ursus maritimus) and Humans (Homo Sapiens), Badgers are thought to be the only animals which attack without provocation."

See, if you dropped polar bears in Iraq people would get suspicious, think they were in the middle of some secret island research base or some shit.

But badgers... military can get away with that.

I'd say those badgers didn't just appear on their own.

They had help.

I thought polar bears' provocation was the lack of anything to eat aside from ice?

And so just follow the logic man, what provocation might a man-eating badger in a desert experience? This is not a hard one, just think!

They were honey badgers.  Probably not much honey there, I'm going to guess.

Honey is a treat for them and they tolerate a whole lot of bee stingers.

But they will eat anything they can find, like insects and snakes, even the most poisonous. They can also tolerate snake poison amazingly well.
