Man-eating Badgers Didn't Come from England

Was catching up on my TMQ, and found this gem:

British forces have denied rumours that they released a plague of ferocious badgers into the Iraqi city of Basra.


UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer said: "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area."
Shearer was heard to be muttering several things under his breath while leaving the press conference at which he denied knowledge about the man-eating badgers.

You could try to make this stuff up, but nobody would ever believe you ever again.

Anyway, if anybody was going to leave man-eating badgers wandering around, for sure it would have been the 32nd ID.
