    Good to see that the police are investigating and are on the badger's side. If there is a successful prosecution the badger army will arise and drive all humans out of Worcester. Or maybe they will od on milk.

    :D Yes. An embarrased Badger at that, he suddenly realised he was in the wrong castle.

    That is such a confusing article FB. If Badgers are a protected species, why is the government wiping them out ?

    The farmers object to badgers as they say that they spread TB to cattle Titch. There is, however, just as much evidence to show that cattle spread TB to badgers.

    The farmers pay more tax than badgers.

    I appreciate what you say Bill Boddy, but the point I was trying to make, is, if the government have given Badgers protected status, how can they then authorise a cull, which because of their protected status is illegal?
    It’s all very stupid.
    I love cows, and I love badgers. In Europe cows are injected against TB. As are we. If it’s good enough for me, it’s good enough for cows. Then the Government wouldn’t have to break their own laws.

    Having done some investigation I feel that now os probably the best time to share it with others.

    As is well known badgers can achieve what humans cannot in many fields, especially soft muddy ones. But there is one field where the best badger exceeded the performance of the top sportsmen of their, and most others, day. Cycling. Everyone has seen it but no-one else, so far, have realised what happened.

    Badgers are very good at hiding their presence and so it was that one managed to disguise himself to go under the pseudonym of "Bernard Hinault". From the late 1970s to 1986 after which he retired he took part in many races with almost unequalled success.. The list of his victories includes the Tour de France (5 times), the Giro d'Italia (three times), the Vuelta d'Espagne (twice) and the the World Road Race Championship.

    He now lives quietly in a sett in rural France, just surfacing from time to time to pontificate on subjects which he does not necessarily know anything about.

    One point if interest is that he was nearly unmasked, he was actually given the nic-name of "The Badger" but got away with it!
