Dire Badgers in Iraq!

Holy crap! There's vicious giant badgers running around Basra attacking people! Of course, locals are sure its an insidious plot by the British to sow fear and mayhem, but the British army says "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area".

Ups to [The Technonaut], who casually said to me "So, did you hear about the badgers?"
