What a bunch of wimps
They should have watched the cracking BBC Nature documentary last night about living alongside wildlife in Anchorage. A moose or a grizzly in your garden - that's really something to worry about!
Seriously, has there ever been an instance of a badger injuring a human (even a 2-year old)? Perhaps they need Bill Oddie to instruct them in the lost martial art of 'Ecky Thump'.
