Not a very newsworthy story in the telegraph. There is some clear scaremongering going on here and its being done suspiciously close to the general election. I wonder what people in Britain would do if we still had bears and wolves. People in other countries deal with wildlife that REALLY is dangerous and often manage to co-exist. Badgers are cautious animals and do not attack humans. I bet this poor badger was far more shocked than the man at this sudden encounter.
