Man-eating badgers

Posted by: Hammer / 7:52 AM

Oh, those pernicious Brits. At least the plague of man-eating badgers will prepare Iraqis for the coming zombie apocalypse:

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.

But several of the creatures, caught and killed by local farmers, have been identified by experts as honey badgers.

The rumours spread because the animals had appeared near the British base at Basra airport.

UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer said: "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area.

The real question is: was Major Mike amused or embarrassed to have to "categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area?" Do we have video on that?
