Slightly disturbing headline on the BBC News website today. Pilot badger culls approved. Presumably, this exercise will involve ground-to-air missiles? OK, sorry, its been one of those days. It would explain, though, why you only ever see dead badgers on the roadside (whereas you see living foxes, hedgehogs, etc. as well as dead ones). There was I thinking that farmers were illegally killing poor old Mr Brock and making them look like roadkill. It turns out that they were actually being shot down.
