I can’t get over just how cute European badgers are. How could an animal possibly be so cute? Honey badgers are all the rage right now (I know, I know, he don’t care…), but I just can’t muster the affection for him or the American Badger that I have for their British brethren. I also imagine them to be intelligent, but that might just be the Trufflehunter effect. I’ve known about the badger cull in England for a while, but only recently heard that a cull would very probably promote the spread of bovine tuberculosis instead of controlling it. I can’t think of many things as frustrating as politicians . ignoring . scientists.
